Hello,

If it is the video that is at the top of the page using HTML you can edit the codes width and height to smaller dimensions to fit better on mobile.

But doing that changes the size on the desktop too.   Is there a way to make it fit in mobile without changing the desktop size?

Correct, unfortunately there is not another way since it is an HTML video, if you use a Youtube video link it would allow us to resize the element on mobile just like an image or text box.

That works, but using the youtube link, the video dominates the screen.   I need phone numbers below the video to show up at the bottom because the end of the video shows a different phone number.    What's my solution to that problem?

Understandable, you can maybe place a text box below the video.

I do have a text box below the video (the green text), but when you click to play the video, it doesn't display because the video dominates the screen.    How can I get around that using the YouTube video link?

I think I got it by adding a section for mobile and hiding the first section, then eliminating the "pop up when clicked" option on the video.   .....unless you have a better way.

Disabling pop up when click should work. I was playing with it also and was not able to get it adjusted otherwise.

Michelle, I added a you tube video and it does not show on my mobile site.  How do I add it?

Hello Lynae,

It may be under the hidden elements from the mobile settings. I was not able to locate the video. What website and page is it on? I can take a better look.

Fortworthcountrymemories.com - That is the problem.  It is on the desktop version on the home page but did not transfer to mobile site.

The section that that video is in is hidden. Go to the mobile editor, select settings and under hidden elements you will see section 2. Click on the eye to add it back to the page.
