FWIW, that video in your post is too wide to display on my phone. About 1/3 of the right side is cut off. 

I see it that way too. I wonder if it's because of the embedding, and it would otherwise appear correctly. The video in Tom's post shows up fine on mobile, despite mine being smaller. :unsure:

It might be because Denise is manually telling the video to be that wide, and the other ones get resized smaller if your browser isn't wide enough to display them.

I tried the manual embed to resize and it worked for me too. Pasting the link is so much more convenient, but I guess I won't do it that way (at least for now) since the videos are sooo huge. :haha:

maybe tom or buzz can set the size of video embed to a smaller size

I've updated the max video embed width to 480. Lets see how that goes.

Is there a way to center the video? I tried to center it earlier but wasn't working.

I'm wondering this, too.

Doesn't appear to be a way to do it without changing the CSS which would then center all videos and I don't think that's ideal. Maybe in the next version of Invision it'll become an option.

I've tried embedding a video with the embed code and nothing is happening.  What am I doing wrong? 🤔   (desktop)

You can just copy and paste the video link (for example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ra-Om7UMSJc) into the post and it will automatically embed. You don't have to use the embed coding from YouTube.

 

1. Paste link (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ra-Om7UMSJc)

2. Link automatically embeds. 

 

And then, if you want it to appear as a link instead, like I did above, then you just click "Display as a link instead" after pasting it into the post)
