22.214.171.1247.beta has the same issue in both Beta and Release modes.
I’m on test site that is not available from public at the moment.
I use the following link to test playing external video:
Video size is not defined in video settings
I have opened access to the test site (please, remove link when publishing) with 126.96.36.1997.beta
It’s the second video from the bottom.
It looks like as a firefox issue. Chrome is ok.
No DRM Text.
I use Dream theme by vsfish. Unfortunately, it was removed from wp catalog. The latest version that could be found is dream.1.0.24.zip
the DRM text is actually enabled for that video, perhaps you are enabling it globally.
That’s why the issue is appearing.
You can fix it by setting the player dimensions to match the video aspect ratio – the video is 640 x 273 pixels, but the player is set to 640 x 360 pixels.
I think in this case we could set the player to adapt to the video size automatically to make sure the video always appears properly.
Yes, DRM is enabled globally to protect dozens of my private videos.
But I also have dozens of embedded YouTube videos that have this issue.
My theme’s layout width is only 600px.
Without proper automatic video resizing It all looks like a deadlock for me (
Will this issue be fixed in the next release?
with the automatic resizing it’s not so simple as the YouTube API doesn’t expose the video aspect ratio nor dimensions. So it seems like we would have to start recording each video dimensions.
For now the safest route is to disable DRM text for these videos or set the proper video dimensions.
If you want to try the automatic resizing, then you can take the fv_flowplayer_conf code snippet from https://foliovision.com/player/advanced/api-programming
I think I created a fix for this issue – If you have a moment, could you please reinstall FV Player from this link: https://github.com/foliovision/fv-wordpress-flowplayer/archive/master.zip ?
To do that you will have to first deactivate and delete the current FV Player plugin you are using. WordPress will warn you that you might loose settings and data, but it’s not the case with our plugin, no settings now videos will be lost. Or you can just replace the plugin files via FTP.
Then the issue should be fixed.
fv player 188.8.131.527 changes video size when start playing an external hls video from a remote site. HTML layout is ignoring. No such effect for local and amazon-hosted videos.
