    Hey there,

    Long time user of the theme, it’s been really great. My site is http://KnowTechie.com and I’ve noticed for quite some time that anytime I insert a YouTube video into a post (not the video format option), it doesn’t show up as responsive on mobile. It rather extends pass the borders of the page and makes it all whacky. Any solution to this?

    hi KnowTechie, are you using another plugin to insert youtube video? we also test it on our end, but it work fine. or you may need to upgrade your themes to fix this issues.

    Thank you

    I’m currently on Jmagz v1.3, is this the latest?

    Also, I’m not using any other plugin to insert video. At first I thought it may have been the jetpack plugin, but I deactivated it and it still not showing videos responsive on mobile.

    Also, I’ve noticed that the semantics and snippets are not displaying in Google search results for reviews as well.

    Here’s an example: http://knowtechie.com/snag-the-umi-max-4g-smartphone-for-less-than-140-at-gearbest/ (the video is at the bottom of the post)

    You’ll notice on mobile it extends pass the borders. I just added the youtube link right in the editor. Embedding does the same thing.

    I noticed, if I embed the video and add a <div class=”video container” it seems to work, but that takes a lot of time and effort.

    I add youtube videos by simply pasting the video url right in the wordpress editor. It works on your end, but unfortuantely it doesn’t work on mine unless I place the <div class=”video container” to make it work.

    To be fair, inserting youtube videos within posts were never responsive on my end. I have no idea what’s going on.

    hi knowtechie, it should automatically add video-container wrap right after you add your video.
    we have it on jmagz-plugin > lib > filter-shortcode.php
    you can take a look at function : custom_oembed_filter. it will wrap your video iframe (youtube & video) automatically.

    Thank you
