Support » Theme: Neve » YouTube embeds too tall

  • amb9800


    When I use the standard YouTube embed block on a page, the video height is excessive (seems to display in about a 4:3 aspect ratio, so when you click play, you get black bars above and below).

    This does not happen with other themes, so might have something to do with responsive embed support, as discussed in this thread (for a different theme, but same issue):

  • Hi,

    Does this happen to you for other Youtube embeds as well? I’ve tried others and couldn’t replicate the issue.
    If so, can you please share the embeds you’ve tested with?

    Thank you,

    Hi Rodica,

    Just updated my version of Neve (for some reason, it was only showing an update being available on the WP Themes page, not the Updates page). That seems to have mostly addressed the issue, but not quite fully — instead of massive letterboxing, the black bars above and below the video are now small, but still present — e.g.:

    This happens for any YouTube embed anywhere on my site (any YT video, embedded on any page, post, etc. on the site).


    Hi @amb9800,

    Can you please let me know if adding this code in Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS helps with that issue?

    .nv-iframe-embed {
        padding-top: 0px !important;
