Videos within shapes?

Hello,

Is there a way to insert a video into a shape? I have a video on my main page that has the black spacing on the top and bottom, so I created a shape to mask it. This is good until the screen shrinks to mobile view. When the video is smaller, the black space is larger. Is there a way to fix this? or hide the video in a shape? I hope this makes sense. Thanks in advance.

I’m guessing you’re embedding a YouTube video? Isn’t it just a matter of getting the element proportions to match the video to remove the black bars?

There’s a method I’m using hiding scroll bars for relating groups but it might work for your video.

Try to create a Group instead of a shape, and give it a background color. Make sure to arrange the group on top of the video. This way you can try and hide the black areas.

Hello,

It’s is actually a video that I licensed on Adobe.

I will give this a try, thank you!
