Suddenly, alot of my embedded videos are overflowing their borders and not displaying correctly. This only started happening recentrly.

Here's my code




Terri Theme




Anyone else having similar issues? Or is there something wrong with ym code that is only showing up now?

Thanks

    Yup, my vids are over reaching too. I thought it was part of the reforge process and that things would fix themselves as the change is complete.
    I know I´v not changed anything with the vids.

    All of the youtube videos are over reaching now.
    This is not the first time. Last time it corrected on youtube's side- it was some change they did.
    I am working on a fix- using hoptowngamenight's solution of imbedding it in an image.

    Beyond me.... the width is currently set for 1280, and I cannot adjust it- Help code gurus!! For now I am changing my vids to links to youtube again.

    Well, if this helps, it seems to only be videos created in widescreen format on YouTube.

    Originally, I thought it was just my Opening Credits video, so, after tinkering a bit, I recreated it as a non-widescreen video, and it appears fine on my site. But, still alot of the videos I use that are not mine (several of my PC's theme songs), are still overflowing

    You changed them on YouTube or did you change their size here?

    Deleted all of them on youtube- one had over 300 views...
    However, this will solve this intermittent problem- it happens every 6 months it seems- it is not OP's fault, it happens every time youtube makes changes.

    Problem is, the videos I am having issues with, aren;t mine. I can;t go and delete and resize. They're the ones I'm using for my character's theme songs.
    I've tried everything I can find online as well, to no avail

    I finally just gave up on the videos.

    Removed all of the videos for Theme Songs and replaced them with Grooveshark links

    Dummy me never even thought of that. I should have.

    Will do so now, for the benefit of everyone else. I kinda like how the Bio's for my PC's look with the Grooveshark setup rather than the Youtube box now :)

    This is definitely something we're going to probably lump into the reforging guys, I'm gonna pass this up to Micah anyway. Thanks for the discussion!

    Jerry-
    It was not a difficult fix, and honestly it is not OP's fault- this happens each time youtube makes a major format change.

    What killerVP said. I simpoly re-did my Opening Credits as a non-widescreen video, which is the only video on my site I made myself, re-uploaded it to YouTube, and re-entered it to the pages it was on. Then shared that solution here, and replace my PC's theme songs with Grooveshark setups instead of embedded videos. In the long run, it looks better this way.

    just a heads up, you can also correct the issue if you are an ascendant by putting this code in your custom css:

    iframe {
    max-width: 650px;
    }

    you can adjust the max-width and set a height accordingly too (as it will be shaped a bit strange - the default is 854x480 so you want to try to preserve that ratio)

    Nice Saethone! That is awesome! Wish I had known that one before I had to delete all my vids and reload them- but will surely help a lot of people who have not made changes yet!
    Thanks!

    No prob, too bad I didn't get around to figuring it out sooner. Would have saved you and Keryth a lot of time I'm sure haha.

    Awesome Saethone. Glad someone found a fix for this.

    And yea, it would have saved alot of work. Redoing my opening credits, was a PITA. Oh well, C'est la vie. Least a solution is there for others.

    Also, for me, it worked out better in the end. The Grooveshark setup does not take away from my PC's bios as the big video's did, so, I'm better off.
