I am trying to embed a YouTube video in one of my widgets on the Metro theme, but it is not resizing the video to fit the widgetted area. Is there something I need to do to get this to size properly and then be responsive? Right now I am pasting the embed code in a text widget.
Are you using the iFrame or old embed code? You can create the proper size in Youtube under custom size.
I am using the old embed code. I did end up getting it right to the size it needed to be, but I thought there was an easier way to get it to adjust automatically. Maybe not, and if that is the case then I will live with it as is. Thanks once again for your help!
You can manually manipulate the code. Add 100% to the width and lock in a height (300px). This way it would automatically size the width.
Ok, I will play with that. Thanks again for all your help!
So happy I found this thread. I have used the embed code to add a video in the primary sidebar widget area. My question is, how do I properly size the video so that it looks attractive on the home page? Can you provide me with step-by-step instructions?
Also, is it easier to use a plug-in or the embed code when adding video to widgets?
