Youtube video not fullscreen in header

  • Author

    I have the Bravada Plus theme. I am attempting to change the header video to a youtube video. However, when I look at the preview, the video is not sized to the screen and it does not play automatically. I have had more success with shorter videos, but the black bar remains. I have 2 questions:

    1. How short does the video need to be to play properly?
    2. How do I get rid of the black bar/sizing issue?

    The video header is displayed in the theme’s configured header (image) height. If the video size does not match the area it is displayed in, you’ll see empty (black) space around it.
    Since YouTube videos rarely have the same aspect ratio as the theme’s default header configuration, you’ll most likely need to either adjust the header height configuration, or use a video with the necessary aspect ratio (wider than the usual 16:9).
