I having some issue with the Embed functionality when I try to change the dimensions of a YouTube video. I'm not sure if the problem is with Umbraco 7.6.6, the media provider (YouTube) or with me :)
Issue #1 - Embed - Default Options
Once I retrieve a YouTube video (leave the default dimensions and don't uncheck "Constrain"), the dimensions that are retrieved/displayed are not the dimensions written in the editor or grid.
Ex: Video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SkHfc3kSuoA
The retrieved dimensions are 360 x 240 but when I add the video, the dimensions written are 360 x 203.
<p><iframe width="360" height="203" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/SkHfc3kSuoA?feature=oembed" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen=""></iframe></p>
Side note: I didn't realize the height was changing with the default options because I was so focused on the width.
Issue #2 - Changing Dimensions
If I change the width to "600" and leave Constrain checked, the new dimensions are listed as 600 x 288 (which is the wrong aspect ratio if we're using the retrieved dimensions).
However, if I try and add the video to the RTE (leaving the Constrain option checked), it doesn't write the iframe:
<div class="umb-loader" style="height: 10px; margin: 10px 0px;"></div>
If I were adding it to the grid, I would just see a progress bar repeat over and over and over. Again, not writing the video.
BUT if I uncheck Constrain (after the dimensions were changed -- which I have to click twice before it unchecks? The first click seems to reload the Embed area) it will write the iframe in the RTE.
<p><iframe width="512" height="288" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/SkHfc3kSuoA?feature=oembed" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen=""></iframe></p>
The problem now is the dimensions are written in as 512 x 288 (which looks like the new dimensions are being adjusted for a second time using the adjusted height (288), not the displayed height, which was 400).
I'm confused and I can't seem to find any information regarding this.
I would expect, at the very least, the displayed values for the width and height, before submitting the embed, would be written.
Did you find a solution for this problem?
We having the same issue.
It's been a while, but I think the issue was with YouTube.
The video I was trying to embed had black top and bottom borders and YouTube was sending back the "cropped" dimensions of the video, and I had no idea it would do that.
At least I think that was it. If I remember more, I'll reply with it.
