We are almost done, but you can play with some settings. First of all you can try to make your video “more” responsive. To do so you can set width=”100%” and height=”auto”. If result does not suits you, you can try some additional solution here and here or you can play with height settings (height=”300”). You can also switch off default autoplay option by deleting it.
