Embedding vertical videos

Andrea May 04, 2017 06:52AM CEST

I'm having an issue embedding videos, only the top portion of the video is viewable. The video orientation is vertical: 412x732 px and for some reason, I am only able to view a top portion of the video.
I am creating a multicolumn to eventually put 2 videos side by side with 20 px of padding in the middle.

This is the oembed link I am using:

[KGVID width="412" height="732" align="center"]http://www.ilikehavingstuff.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/10927-CRV-RhythmOne.mp4[/KGVID]

I would appreciate any help! This is the link to the page: http://www.ilikehavingstuff.com/?work=honda-crv-2017

Hi Andrea,

The oEmbed link only works with external sites like YouTube, Vimeo, etc. You’ll want to use the self-hosted video module.

Best,
Amanda

Hi Amanda,

I really appreciate your quick response! Unfortunately, I tried the video module and it doesn't display the vertical video well either. Once the video starts playing, the video expands beyond the bounds of the video module. I think making turning the videos in gifs might be my only solution.

Thank you,
Andrea
