FAQ

What is the difference between manual and automatic configuration

Automatic configuration will wrap all your embedded videos in a div with class .entry-content-asset
Javascript will automatically target those elements and make your videos responsive

I am using the autoconfig option, and some of my videos are not responsive

Depending on the theme / plugins you’re using, it is possible that embedded video HTML is not being generated using oEmbed.
Disable auto configuration option, and use CSS selector to target your content

Default CSS selector is not working, which one should I use?

Generally speaking, you should use the CSS selector for your content div. If you can’t find it, you can use body as your CSS selector.

I was looking for a solution to cut the extra black space on a simple link embedded videos and this plugin solved the issue out of the box! Especially useful if you already have a bunch of posts with many videos and do not want to go and wrap every single one with a div. This plugin solves the issue for all the embedded videos on the website at once.

Not sure about functionality but Sibin provided great customer support and problem solving skills. I was trying to make a video slider responsive with mobile (worked on desktop site but not on mobile) using this plug in to no avail. Apparently the native embed was Flash based and has nothing to do with functionality of plugin. Sibin was able to offer an alternative that get the job done.

I did have a bit of an issue with the default selector. I posted on the forum and Sibin, the author, responded quickly with a simple fix. The whole process, tech support included was quick and painless.
