    Introducing FitVids.js

    A lightweight, easy-to-use jQuery plugin for fluid width video embeds.

    FitVids automates the Intrinsic Ratio Method by Thierry Koblentz to achieve fluid width videos in your responsive web design.

    How Do I Use It?

    Include jQuery 1.7+ and FitVids.js in your layout and target your videos container with fitVids().

    <script src="path/to/jquery.min.js"></script>
    <script src="path/to/jquery.fitvids.js"></script>
        // Target your .container, .wrapper, .post, etc.

    This will wrap each video in a div.fluid-width-video-wrapper and apply the necessary CSS. After the initial Javascript call, it's all percentage-based CSS magic.

    Currently Supported Players

    Kickstarter Y*

    * means native support for these may be deprecated. If your video platform is not currently supported, try adding it via a customSelector...

    Add Your Own Video Vendor

    Have a custom video player? We now have a customSelector option where you can add your own specific video vendor selector (mileage may vary depending on vendor and fluidity of player):

      $("#thing-with-videos").fitVids({ customSelector: "iframe[src^=''], iframe[src^='']"});
      // Selectors are comma separated, just like CSS

    Note: This will be the quickest way to add your own custom vendor as well as test your player's compatibility with FitVids.

    Ignore With Class

    Have a video you want FitVids to ignore? You can slap a class of fitvidsignore on your object or container and your video will be displayed as it is defined.

    If you'd like to add a custom block to ignore FitVids, use the ignore option.

      $("#thing-with-videos").fitVids({ ignore: '.mycooldiv, #myviiid'});
      // Selectors are comma separated, just like CSS

    Known issues

    • Vimeo Autoplay API is not compatible with FitVids in IE11. You must manually wrap videos you want to autoplay.
