    VIdeos Posted Truncated On Right Side Because Of a 1/3 Screen Column Of Other Stuff

    post #1 of 9
    Thread Starter 

    I don't know if anyone else has this problem, but when I click on the video in my original post http://www.basenotes.net/t/371921/london-in-1927-a-color-film

     

     the film plays but is truncated on the right side by:  Features, Topics Discussed,  Recent Reviews and Currently Viewing displayed in the 1/3 screen width column on the right. There is no visible way I can locate to make the video show in full.   (I have a 21" screen).  Videos, if allowed in posts, should be allowed sufficient space to fully show in posts without being squeezed into 2/3 horizontal view therefore cutting off much of the video to viewers.

     

    I am using Google Chrome

    When viewing your vid from my Kindle Fire, the video box escapes the confines of the post territory and overlaps the matter in the right column.

    I have the same problem on my Safari browser.  We may have to post links to the video rather than the video itself.

    Yep, on the Mac/Safari, the video is chopped off.

    Other threads, with video posts  approximately seven-eight positions down the page (depends on length of posts) are full screen. Apparently the column on the right side of the screen only extents down so far to constrict only the first half dozen+ post or so. When and if this Thread receives more than 7-8 posts, we shall see.

     

    Of course, the OPs post of a video will always be in the #1 position and thus truncated at the right side under the present set of code,  unless she/he reposts it again sufficiently further down.

    I thought that might be the case. Clearly, this is a major shortcoming of Huddler and an extra headache Grant doesn't need.

    Putting aside how videos are affected, all those features hogging a third of every page is just an eyesore. Links for those areas can be placed elsewhere on the page. The area allocated for posts is just too cramped.

    Using Safari, I can view it in full screen mode (video controls) with these Account settings on a laptop.

    With Firefox I see them in full screen mode - no truncation.
