Support » Plugin: Featured Video Plus » Embedding in non-standard proportions?

  • The video embedded on my website is deliberately 1744-by-1080 pixels in its native size, narrower in proportion than standard 1920-by-1080 (16:9) videos. I embedded it into my website in the usual way: by pasting the YouTube URL into the Featured Video field in the admin area of my website.

    Notice how on the YouTube version, the video is displayed in its intended proportions, with no pillar-boxing or letter-boxing. But on my website, the page initially loads with a poster frame that displays at 1689-by-1255 pixels (on my screen). This is much taller than the video’s intrinsic proportions, and the poster image has its left and right sides cropped off. When I click to play the video, it plays smaller within the container, with letter-box bars above and below the video.

    Regular 16:9 videos on my website (such as this one) play edge-to-edge, as expected.

    Is there a way I can make the video play at its intrinsic proportions, with no letter-boxing above and below?

    Update, four days later: If you visit the page on my site now, you’ll notice that everything is displaying as expected. I ended up exporting a new version of my video, cropped in the standard 16:9 proportion, uploaded it to YouTube, and embedded THAT version on my site. (I left the other crop up on YouTube.) I would still like to be able to occasionally embed differently-proportioned videos, and have them display in their intended proportions without any letter-boxing or pillar-boxing. I will dig into the code of the plugin and see if I can come up with an answer. Maybe I could use page-specific CSS to tweak the percentages? Thanks again!
