Hi, there.

I am able to reproduce your issue on your test page, but when I take your setup block and put it on a test page of my own (linked below), the player plays the video as expected, both through Flash and HTML5. It looks like your issue may lie in your CSS, or other elements on the page, however nothing jumps out at me. With that being said, I am not a CSS expert.

Please let me know if you need any more help or have any other questions.

Thank you!

Alex is correct, another CSS statement on your page is causing 'video' elements to be constrained to their natural width.

Try adding the following to your page:

.jwvideo video{
