Hi, all. I am having trouble with the way my video files are displayed on my wordpress site. My quicktime videos are displayed the way I would like them to be viewed, however, all other file types are displayed in a way that they do not fit into the screen, and I can't figure out how to save them as quick time files, or shrink them to fit the screen. Any help would be appreciated, here is a link so you can check it out yourself. I want the first one to be smaller and viewed like the second video, thanks! http://comedycobra.com/funny-ass-videos-fav/

Hi viking83,

I looked at the link you provided, and it appears that on your site you are linking to the videos directly. Instead, you may want to embed the videos. When you embed a video, it will show directly on the page, just like youtube videos appear on their website.

On this page you can find example code for embeding a video.

If you followed the tutorial on that page, the resulting html for you to use would look something like this:

<video width="320" height="240" controls>
   <source src="http://comedycobra.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/Popovich-funny.mov" type="video/mp4">
   Your browser does not support the video tag.
</video>




I hope this helps point you in the right direction - let us know if you have any further questions, we're happy to help!
