Current status of the Ning Platform is always available on the Ning Status Blog.



Note this is now the new code as the uploaded videos are not in an iframe the first part was affecting the layout slightly for the uploaded videos. This code now checks to see if the video is in an iframe and if so adds a class for the css.

Here is some code to make the videos added to the new video feature responsive in size. This will especially help those videos that have been embeded rather than a link just added.

You can see a demo here: Demo Of Responsive Video

Add some custom code to your site and pages custom code to add a class if iframe exists

x$(document).ready(function() {
if (x$('.videoDetailPage-video iframe').length > 0) {

Now add the updated CSS

/* Make video Responsive */
.videoDetailPage-video.iframed {
    margin-bottom: 5px;
    width: 100%;
    height: 0;
    padding-bottom: 56.25%;
    position: relative;
.videoDetailPage-video.iframed iframe{
    max-width: 100%;
    height: 100%;
    position: absolute;
