Thanks for your help - I de-activated and activated the plugin and it's working now!
It wouldn't have worked with the < brackets though so thanks for spotting that David

I have also discovered another reason it was not working for me I was trying to place the code in a text widget and by default you can't run shortcodes in widgets
Need to add this to functions.php
// Use shortcodes in text widgets.

I have just put up a new post and the Yoast Video SEO plugin does not see it using Fluid Video Embeds?
Is anyone else using Yoast SEO with Fluid Video Embed successfully?April 17, 2013 at 6:53 pm #36043
Where in the CSS style sheet should I add the video class? I'm still learning CSS so it's not very obvious to me. I can't stick it just anywhere I want can I?April 17, 2013 at 7:02 pm #36048
Just copy it to the very bottom of the Style sheet.April 18, 2013 at 12:32 am #36084

Wow Marco, I got it working and it was sooooooo easy! StudioPress, please, you should give us this out from the box. Marco, I've downloaded the script js files, and instead of creating a lib/js folder inside my Metro Theme folder, I've put the files inside the js Metro The Folder. Then I change the wp_register_script('fluidvids', get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . '/lib/js/fluidvids.js', array(), $ver, true); line for wp_register_script('fluidvids', get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . '/js/fluidvids.js', array(), $ver, true); and it worked flawless. I've written a memo on my notebook about this change to take care if the theme upgrades. Thanks for the help, I spent a couple of weed trying to notice which could be the best way to get videos oEmbeded responsive... have a nice weekend everybodyMay 4, 2013 at 6:09 pm #39310
Marco, this is crazy, but when I use that script, my YouTube sidebar widget (inserted with this code:
style="overflow: hidden; height: 100px; width: 300px; border: 0;"
I deleted the functions.php lines inserted before, and now works fine (but i have no responsive videos :S). Do you know how can I solve this to still get videos responsive but without dissapearing my widget? thanks in advanceMay 12, 2013 at 11:26 am #40569
Can you still just use the youtube plug in and ombeed with that plug in?May 12, 2013 at 11:30 am #40570
I just installed the fluid video plug in on my test site and it's looking strange on the iphone. Any thoughts?May 28, 2013 at 5:35 pm #42978
Thanks for the tips everyone. I just tried out the Advanced Responsive Video Embedder plugin mentioned above and it worked fine. I am also going to try out fitvids.js just to see how it works but for my purposes the plugin is an easy solution.
I have another job that will be using VideoPress so will see what works best for that application. Has anyone tried one of these solutions with VideoPress?
