    Hello there @gatherwell, I hope you’re well today!

    @jim_meyer the link is correct, you simply have to remove the closing parentheses from the end. Annoying, I know… but it happens! :slight_smile:

    the video is showing up as too big for the sidebar!

    Try adding a text widget right above the video widget that already have there and paste the following styles inside it:

    <style>.widget.Ytvw_YouTubeVideo_Widget iframe { width: 250px !important; height: 210px !important; } </style>

    I am marking this issue as resolved. If however you find that the above solution doesn’t work for you then feel free to reopen it!

    Try this:

    Open up the /wp-content/themes/studio/_inc/css/studio.css file and copy-paste the code below exactly as you see it at the end of the file:

    #sidebar .widget iframe {
    width: 250px !important;
    height: 210px !important;

    Please let us know how that works for you… When I tested it on my browser yesterday it was working.

    P.S. I also noticed that you moved the youtube video from the sidebar to your main content area.

    Do you still require assistansce on this issue?

    Trying to try it – very amateur question I’m sure but I went to “Editor” , under select theme have “Studio” – don’t see css on the menu. Also, if I get this to work with Studio theme would I have to add the same or different code if I switch to product (which I’m seriously considering because of the lack of video integration on the front slider in studio). Thanks, Cynthia

    Greetings Everyone,

    To adjust the width and height of the of the player you want to adjust the pixel sizes in the class_ytvw_video_widget.php file located in the /wp-content/plugins/youtube-videos-widget/lib folder around line 242 to what you would like them to be.

    That will do the job for you.
