Re: Center align liquid content- video

Solved

How can I center align a non-Youtube video on a webpage?

Hi all,

Found code on another forum post to add videos not on Youtube to our website's homepage, and it works great. The video is in portrait mode so I sized it down, but we'd like the video to be centered. Here's the code I used, added to a new liquid section: 

 

<div class="section-homepage-video">
<video autoplay muted loop playsinline class="video-homepage">
<source src="https://cdn.shopify.com/videos/c/o/v/99c9561a99b2449393881f56d466cf96.mp4 " type="video/mp4">
</video>
</div>
{% schema %}
{
"name": "Homepage Video",
"class": "index-section index-section--flush",
"settings": [],
"presets": [{
"name": "Homepage Videos",
"category": "Text"
}]
}
{% endschema %}
{% stylesheet %}
.section-homepage-video{
width:100%;
}
.video-homepage{
width: 50%;
height: auto;
}
{% endstylesheet %}
{% javascript %}
{% endjavascript %}

Can this be centered? Any help will be appreciated.

Hi @imexmodelco2 

You can try to update your code to this and check if it works 

<div class="section-homepage-video">
<video autoplay muted loop playsinline class="video-homepage">
<source src="https://cdn.shopify.com/videos/c/o/v/99c9561a99b2449393881f56d466cf96.mp4 " type="video/mp4">
</video>
</div>
{% schema %}
{
"name": "Homepage Video",
"class": "index-section index-section--flush",
"settings": [],
"presets": [{
"name": "Homepage Videos",
"category": "Text"
}]
}
{% endschema %}
{% stylesheet %}
.section-homepage-video{
width:100%;
}
.video-homepage{
width: 50%;
height: auto;
margin: 0 auto;
}
{% endstylesheet %}
{% javascript %}
{% endjavascript %}

That didn't quite work- it resized it to be too big again and still is on the left

Video is not up right now because of the incorrect formatting- we didn't want to post the video on Youtube, hence the workaround

Please enable that video section so I can check and help you

Please add this code to Custom CSS of that section to make the video full width

.video-homepage { width: 100%; padding: 4rem; }
@media (max-width: 767px){ padding: 2rem; }

We don't want the video to be full page width, maybe half. Just want the video itself centered on the page. If video is full width, it will be far too long on our page since it's a vertical video. That's why I had it at 50% width in the original code.

 

The custom CSS doesn't work with it anyway: "Invalid custom CSS: Certain At-rules are not supported. Try using global CSS."

 

Thank you for trying anyway.
