I’m trying to figure out why my Soundcloud oEmbeds won’t resize automatically, even though every other oEmbed (Youtube & Vimeo) works perfectly. I know, there are several workarounds to set a specific width to oEmbeds, like adding this to the function.php:
Or adding these attributes to the soundcloud link: http://soundcloud.com/forss/flickermood?maxwidth=200&show_artwork=false
They both get the job done quite well, BUT: Assigning a set width to oEmbeds ruins the responsiveness of my design, e.g. when viewed on a tablet or smartphone, a 960px width player (that fits perfectly in the desktop edition) is just way too big for a smaller screen.
The weirdest of all is that setting a set width for oEmbeds in my theme’s function.php has absolutely no effect on YouTube and Vimeo oEmbeds: they fill the content area perfectly and automatically appear in just the right size and with the right width.
So, instead of setting a set width for oEmbeds, what other option do I have to make the oEmbedded Soundcloud player automatically resize and stay responsive?
