Responsive Video Embeds


Video embeds are a huge part of the web today, so making them accessible to viewers using a huge variety of devices is paramount. Well along comes FitVids.js, a jQuery plugin that will automatically resize your video embeds depending on browser width. Test it on their site FitVidsjs.com and view their introduction video below.

Add this to your WordPress site by installing this plugin.  (Psst….all of our responsive WordPress themes already include this script, so there is no need to active this script if you are using one of these themes.)

    Thank you very much for posting this! Besides responsive videos I also needed responsive Google maps embeds so I modified the brilliant FitVids plugin and wrote the FitMaps plugin (that is a great name isnt’ it…).

    I am using camtasia studios to generate some video tutorials and host them on Amazon S3. I am using a responsive wordpress theme to display those videos but the problem is I can’t find a video player that support amazon s3 hosted videos and responsive features.
