@ Matthew Chapdelaine
1. Go to HTML
2. Make a <div class="container"> [youtube iframe here] </div>
3. Remove width/height settings from the iframe
4. Open another blogger/editor tab, go to Theme. Click 'Customize' and then 'Advanced'. Scroll down the left menu (with fonts, colors and such).
5. Click on 'add CSS' and enter the code as printed here. Make sure the class names are correct.
6. Apply to blog, preview post. In Firefox, hit F12 (developer mode), click the small smartphone/tablet icon on the right. Try a few presets, the video should adjust to the selected view port.

@Graham and @Alena,
How do you use the css code exactly?
Linda May 14, 2020
Exactly what I needed. Thank you!!!
Graham May 03, 2020
@Alena THANK YOU! That little snippet of code is exactly what I was looking for to make YouTube videos fit onto my web page proportionately!
Literally all I needed to do was to cut the part that said width="560" height="315" from the YouTube iframe embed code and put your code in place and, lo and behold, the YouTube video embeds neatly into my page :-)
Alena Apr 26, 2020
there is even fucking better way just put in css this:
/* override other styles to make responsive */
width: 100% !important;
height: auto !important;

Thanks so much! Helped me out!
Chris Kempt Mar 04, 2020
Hiya, thanks for this - I used this on my blog (blogger) and it worked brilliantly after I renamed the styles to YTcontainer and YTvideo (as the style names above clashed with ones used in my template) Also, for anyone else using blogger, you can add the custom css in Themes > Advanced.
Jonathan Feb 27, 2020
Fantastic. Easily the best solution I've found. Thanks

Stephen Woolston - Do you have the height and width set in the youtube embed? Try removing those if you do
Stephen Woolston Sep 29, 2019
How come it's working for everyone else and not for me? I copied exactly this and my video is a fixed small size, not filling the width of the screen at all.
Darlo Sep 21, 2019
A perfect fix!
Paul Gregory Aug 04, 2019
Love it! This has fixed a problem I have had on my site for a while. Of course the page builders can do it but I was struggling to fix my Guttenberg and Classic Editor posts.
I did struggle for a while with empty YouTube video boxes. Until I realised the YouTube video source link has to be the Embed version. For those having the same struggle go to YouTube. Click on Embed for your YouTube video of choice and copy and paste the YouTube source link from there. I included the https bit. (I hope this answers the question from the commentator below) And it worked perfectly.

In case it's running on an http site. It uses whatever the host site is using essentially.
Dorian Mar 10, 2019
I'm curious, why is the video source formatted like this "//www.youtube.com/embed/..."?
Why was https: eliminated?
Mr Mar 08, 2019
Thank you! That's i needed for my blog.
Kevin Mar 05, 2019
Great stuff. Pasted the code in and ready to go.
Michal Jan 14, 2019
Awesome, but how can I change width of embedded iframe and center it horizontally
Thuan Nguyen Jan 10, 2019
Working nicely for copy / paste code. I already had a container and really didn't want to have to account for all the media query sizes. Thank you very much!

Works flawlessly! I'm currently rebuilding my website and used this technique in the video gallery grid view. Turns out it also works great with images, so I used it in the photo gallery as well! Thanks! :)

Watchoutonnet JointheFun Jul 08, 2017
This shows the video in 100 of actual size in normal window ( without Re-sizing Screen ) How do I show the video in smaller size, say width="560" height="315" size in normal ? When I resize Screen, video gets smaller with screen size but in normal mode, I want to show the video in smaller than actual size like width="560" height="315" Please let me know ? Thanks.

Just use width: 100
Lee Fairclough Feb 09, 2016
You'll need to adjust the padding-bottom of your container to suit your individual implementation.

very cool fix! in my use it work well the first time page containing the video loads. subsequent loads and it's thumbnial size. i can go full screen at that point and when i escape out it fills the original div. any idea why this would happen?
Dragas Dejanovic Sep 16, 2015
Nick Vogt Sep 02, 2015
Good catch. I'll make some edits. YouTube used to take up some vertical room with the track bar, which made 60 a good balance. But they did away with that recently.
Marc Molins Piulachs Sep 02, 2015
if you want 16:9 use padding-bottom: 56.25;
Matt Struve Aug 28, 2015
yet your demonstration video still has black bars at top and bottom. why?
Alex Rejba Jun 29, 2015
Awesome tip, thank you so much!
Anonymous Apr 01, 2015
Thanks!! Works perfectly and is elementary
Kristofer berg Feb 24, 2015
Thanks! Though, putting height and width in the iframe with percentages doesn't validate. You can put it in the CSS instead, together with the position, top and left. "In HTML 4.01, the width could be defined in pixels or in of the containing element. In HTML5, the value must be in pixels."
Harry Boden Feb 02, 2015
Thanks so much! saved the day..
