Center YouTube Embeds


Recommended Posts


I'm not sure if this is even a feature yet (or if I'm just not doing something right). So I'm posting this in the product feedback/ideas section. When pasting a YouTube link on a post, it will automatically embed and show a preview of the video on the post while editing. However, once this is done, you can't do any formatting to the YouTube video. If you highlight it and press center it will not center. Even if you are already typing in center and embed a video, it will align to the left side of the post.

Is there anyway to change this or add formatting options for embedded videos? Currently, you can't center YouTube videos without turning on HTML and adding center tags around YouTube's embedded <div> tags.

If I've posted this in the wrong section, let me know! Thanks!

I have the below code in my custom.css to center and resize embed video:

div.ipsEmbeddedVideo {
    margin:0px auto;

.ipsEmbeddedVideo.ipsEmbeddedVideo_limited > div,
  max-width: 700px;
  padding-bottom: 0;

.ipsEmbeddedVideo.ipsEmbeddedVideo_limited > div:after,
  content: '';
  display: block;
  padding-bottom: 56.25%;
