[resolved] Video player doesn't work right (3 posts)

    Hi,

    I wanted to embed a YouTube video on my 404 page. I included the php script in my 404.php theme-file. It shows the video in Chrome, but it has big black borders. In Firefox, the video loads for 1/2 second and disappeares then.

    I've cleared caches, looked in my theme files, but I found nothing strange. Can you help? Heres the link to my 404-page: http://www.applewerbung.de/404

    Greetings, Apple Werbung

    Looking at the source of the page I can see you've selected a responsive output video. However, you've also put your own DIV and CSS around the result - this may explain the bars that I too can see in Chrome.

    However, I also notice that there's a VQ parameter being supplied to YouTube - this isn't an option that this plugin currently adds. Has this been manually added?

    Hi,

    I solved the problem. I changed some of the settings and set other video sizes. Yep, I added the vq parameter but it didn't affected the player.

    Thanks for your help!

    Greetings Apple Werbung
