Responsive Video Shortcodes
Video thumbnails appear strange (3 posts)

    Hey - check out my webpage where I have embeded 4 youtube videos using the shortcode:


    The first video looks perfect, but the next three have some strange appearance where the title is sort of chopped off and there is a gray bar along the bottom of the videos. Not sure why it looks this way, but everything looks fine once you click "play" on the video.

    Any idea why this is happening to the last 3 videos and what can be done to fix it?

    Hello Youssef,

    I'm sorry to hear that there's a problem with the plugin. I checked your site, but for now, I'm not sure why it looks that way either. All I see now is that the gray bar is part of the YouTube Flash Embed, so it probably has nothing to do with the CSS.

    I will do some research on it, but I'm not sure if I can solve the problem since it might have to do something with YouTube's way of embedding, especially since it looks fine when the video is playing.

    I'm sorry I could not help you for now, but I will contact you when I find a way.

    Hi Felix,

    Thanks for the prompt reply and looking into the issue. For now, I've replaced the responsive videos with traditional embeds on the old page. I created a test page here with the responsive embeds, and the thumbnail problem is the same:


    It's be great if you could help me find a fix. I'd love to have responsive videos on my website if the thumbnails look normal.
