Yes this worked well. Thanks buddy. Credit given.
Tried using FitVids.js. Didn't do what I wanted it to do.

Worked like a charm, thanks.

Perfect. Thanks!


I am really new to web development and to github as well.

And I would like to use this piece of code in my website.
I see this under the section'public' and there is a copyright attached as well.
The file name is MIT-LICENSE.txt.

So,two questions?
a)Can I use this code by giving an attribution?
b)And, if I do use it, under which license can I use this and what sort of attribution should I give?

Can anyone please shed some light on this?


Would love to see this built into bootstrap! This is very awesome!

works like a charm when i use it in development... as soon as i deploy to heroku, the CSS no longer works...even using the same exact browser

edit fixed my issue. removed all the precompiled assets locally. re-committed, pushed to heroku, let heroku pre-compile on its own, and now it's working. awesome!

Awesome! Thanks!

Worked perfectly! You are the man!

Works well for me. Thanks. One question though: What does the media query in the end do? It doesn't seem to make much difference for me. And why so many very specific queries - some special devices you are targeting?

If you're using Bootstrap 3, responsive embeds are natively supported now. The example below shows how to embed a video (from sources like youtube, vimeo, etc). For this example, you can use .embed-responsive-16by9 or .embed-responsive-4by3 (there are more options in the docs).

<iframe src="..." ...></iframe>

simple. easy. thank you!

Good job mate!!! Works like a charm!
