Videos aren't responsive in posts but are responsive on my homepage

I am trying to add some videos to my posts but they aren’t responsive yet the video on my homepage is automatically responsive. I have the fitvid plug in installed but it still doesn’t work. Can anyone help me solve this issue?

Many thanks

Hello Simon,

Can you please provide a link to your website?

Kind Regards, Roman.

Hi Roman,

thanks for your reply. My website is www.simonfinley.net. You will be able to see that the showreel video on my homepage is fully responsive but the trailer video on the most recent news post isn’t.

Many thanks
Simon

Hello Simon, thank you for the link.

I have just checked your home page and this post, but video is responsive there. Have you already resolved this issue?

Kind Regards, Roman.

Hi Roman, I have just checked myself and you are right the video on the news post is responsive once it plays but I was referring to the youtube frame that doesn’t seem to resize when I resize my browser. These screenshots should explain what I mean. The first is when my browser is open fully and the video fame looks normal. The second is when I have resized my browser. You can see that the video frame gets thinner but the height stays the same which results in the sides of the image getting cropped.

But on my homepage the showreel video frame keeps the same proportions however I resize my browser.

Hello Simon,

I have just tried to recreate your issue on my local Sydney install, but it worked well there.

Also I noticed that you are not using the latest Sydney version. Can you please try to update the theme and see if it helps?
