[Tip/Trick] Make your YouTube posts responsive

Mick.


Want to make sure that your embedded YouTube videos look good on a mobile device? Looking to make your embedded YouTube video responsive? With jQuery and a small bit of CSS, we can make this work. First, i've been using NAO's YouTube BBCode for ages. It also works for SMF 2.0.4 even tho it looks out-dated.

We want to download this JQuery, in the form of a plugin called FitVids, https://github.com/davatron5000/FitVids.js developed by Chris Coiyer, Dave Rupert, and others.

1. Upload the FitVids.js-master folder to your SMF root.
2. Open your theme's index.template.php and find:

</body></html>';
}


Add before:

      <script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.9.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
      <script type="text/javascript" src="/FitVids.js-master/jquery.fitvids.js"></script>
      <script type="text/javascript">
        $("#wrapper").fitVids();
      });
      </script>


Open /Sources/Subs.php and find:

'type' => 'unparsed_content',

Open your theme's /css/index.css and at the very end add:

iframe, embed, object {
        max-width: 100%;
}

.vendor {
        padding: 2%;
        background: #d1eed1;
        margin-bottom: 2em;
}

I wrote a pure css fix for embedded vids. No jQuery required. Not sure why you would need jQuery for this, since it's the css that sets the width limit.

Antechinus

Why choose a more complex and bloated solution, when you can use a simple and less bloated one, to get exactly the same result?

All you need to do is put a css resize on the embed tag. You can do this either inline, or via class. Whatever. Since the custom embed code I was using was done in a script.js anyway, I put the css inline.

<embed width="640px" height="385px" style="max-width: 98%; max-height: auto;" allowscriptaccess="never"\ allowfullscreen="true" quality="high" wmode="transparent" src="{src}"\ type="application/x-shockwave-flash"/>';

That works. No extra plugins needed.

Can you please give proper steps to achieve this with css
I am using Ohara Youtube Embed by Suki

Thanks

Antechinus

That is the proper steps. You just need to put a max-width and max-height on the embed tag. I have never looked at that mod so have no idea how it is coded, but I'm quite sure Suki is capable of telling you how to tweak it.
