I'm trying to embed videos from my files and adjust the size of video player on Canvas pages. I have tried to tweak the html code but couldn't find a way to adjust the player size. Can someone help me?
Hello Chen Qiu Welcome to the Canvas Community. Thank you for posting your question. Out of curiosity, have you considered uploading your videos to your YouTube account and then embedding those videos inside your course? The embed code that you harvest from YouTube would allow you to easily edit the height and width of the videos to your liking via the HTML side of the RCE (Rich Content Editor) in Canvas.
No these videos are secure and we have them all on vimeo already, but with a passcode. Can we bypass the passcode if i just link the video? Otherwise I need to make them internal.
Hello Chen Qiu...
Thanks for the additional information. Unfortunately, I am not familiar with passcodes and videos, so I wouldn't be able to help you on that. Does your school have a secure streaming video server where you could upload your videos and then harvest embed code from that server? You might need to check with your school's IT department to see if that's a possibility. That might be another option for you instead of uploading the videos inside of your Canvas course(s).
Also, I want to align the video thumbnail to the center of the page. I couldn't do it. Are there any way to solve that?
Hi Chen Qiu...
Pretty sure this is possible. Once you get the embed code and paste it into the HTML side of your page of content in your course, return to the non-HTML side of the RCE (Rich Content Editor). Then, you may be able to either select the entire video or just place your cursor immediately to the left of the video, and then just use your text align tools provided in the RCE to left/center/right align the video however you want.
Does this help?
