    I embed youtube videos by just putting the link into the editor and the video displays up in a second. When I see them on the post, they seem quite big size and vertically long.
    I don’t use Gutenberg, so I can’t use the embed block.
    I can’t wrapping them in an HTML element, because I’ve hundreds of articles and I can’t modify one by one. By the way I have several editors that write on my site and I can’t tell them to use html for future articles.

    These are the solutions I found in this forum, but there’s nothing I can do that affects all YouTube videos embedded? Like a function, for example?

    Hi there,

    The YouTube video is currently added with Elementor.

    Can you check with their support to see if there is a way to make it responsive?

    Another option would be to use the Embed block from Gutenberg editor which is responsive by default.

    Let me know 🙂

    I encountered this exact same challenge, and discovered the GeneratePress Responsive Videos documentation. (Thanks for that.)

    But adding the div and CSS causes auto-embedding via oEmbed to no longer function. This solution only works when manually adding the iframe embed code. And, it creates quite a headache for those of us with numerous existing embedded Youtube videos.

    Is this really the only solution?

    If you’re using Gutenberg, videos should be responsive by default now.

    Without Gutenberg, it is necessary to wrap your videos in that wrapper, unfortunately.
