YouTube Thursdays - The Importance of Mobile Friendly Videos
The National Association of REALTORS® estimates that 89% of buyers search for their homes on mobile devices. If your websites don't provide a user-friendly experience, or if your videos don't translate well to a variety of viewing locations, you're missing important connections.
As bloggers and organic marketers, we are always hoping to produce content in the most entertaining and engaging manner. One of the most useful tools to achieve this goal, in my opinion and experience, is video. However, when you add a video to your website - size matters.
When you add a video from YouTube or Vimeo to a Wordpress blog post, it stays the same size. That can make it difficult to watch on a small screen ( mobile device) regardless of how you hold the phone, vertical or horizontal.
Fluid Video Embeds - Wordpress Plug-in
First of all, make sure you have a responsive website, that's the the first step. A decent responsive Wordpress theme will automatically resize everything to ensure it fits nicely on a mobile screen - except for videos.
Fortunately, there is Wordpress plug-in called "Fluid Video Embeds." You can use it to automatically resize videos to appear in the "original aspect ratio" on a mobile, tablet, or desktop. By the way, it's free.
