Have you noticed that when you add YouTube or Vimeo videos to your blog posts the ratios and aspects are off? Often mobile won't size correctly, and as people view your posts from different sized screens the videos often won't resize properly. The WordPress plugin ARVE will help correct these common issues.

Adding the Advanced Responsive Video Embedder

Basic Starter Blogs are pre-loaded with this plugin. Just click to activate the plugin.

Advanced Blog subscription users will need to add this plugin. You'll want to click on the Plugin tab and choose Add New. Then, search for Advanced Responsive Video Embedder. Click Install and then Activate.

Once active, the plugin will show up in your Settings > ARVE. You can then click on ARVE to see the customization options. The presets generally are what you'll want. If you make any changes be sure to click SAVE.

Here's an example of a YouTube video in a blog post after ARVE has been added. Mr. Bean approves!!
