Hi there,

Just wondering if anyone else is having trouble with the way videos are downloading? There is a big empty grey area above each video-looks awful... I did a hard refresh. nothing changed..

is seen here...

Hope you can help

        That link won't work in a browser. That is the path to your local hard drive.


        • Thank You Garfield...

          Oh heck!! I am on my new laptop and I don't have my old apps... I am trying different screenshot downloads  to see which one-I guess this isn't the one to keep! I will try again..

            You could upload the screenshot to your photo section on your site & link to it or upload it to this discussion


            • Hi Garfield,

              Thanks for your help. I will try... but, it could be just my computer (?) I asked a few members and they say they do not see a void, I have cleared cache, hard refresh (ctrl f5), etc... Upon refresh the video appears fine but small, then it bounces to a full size- then my page refreshes itself and I see the big void. I have never seen this before- once I refresh- it changes itself 3 times... very odd...


              • Sorry about this- I think it is going to be big- I will delete it after you guys see it125011401?profile=RESIZE_930x

    • Hi Anna, 

      My first reply was useless... and I still can't get a decent screenshop app- so I did some investigating here is what I see happen...

      I watched the video on my site- clicked to Youtube- checked the embed code- I compared it to what is posted and somehow the size changes could that be it? 

      This is the code on my site for the video-  

      <p><iframe src="" allowfullscreen="" width="475" height="267" frameborder="0" _origwidth="475" _origwidth="475"></iframe>

      Youtube embed code is ---

      <iframe width="560" height="315" src="" frameborder="0" allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen></iframe> 

      Could the size be the problem? grasping at straws...LOL!

      • Hello, Suzie!

        Please check your Inbox as I sent the reply directly to you due to the attached screenshot.

        Best regards,
