I've been trying all sorts of fixes for several hours now trying to get a YT video to be responsive... iframe, custom CSS code, other plugins, and NONE of them have worked. Except this plugin! Thank you kindly for the code!

You can add a line to your functions.php to make videos responsive if you're doing your own theme. However, if you're not, this plugin works beautifully and gives other options like lazy load, etc. If doing your own theme, add: add_theme_support( 'responsive-embeds' );

This plugin does exactly what it's supposed to do, and is extremely easy to use. I have tried a few ones with the same purpose, and have to say 'Simple YouTube Responsive' is by far the best. I'm really happy I found out about it. Last but not least, the developer is very kind and answers promptly 🙂 I definitely recommend this plugin to anyone interested in showcasing YouTube videos on their WP website in the easiest way possible!
