Video too small

I've embedded two videos with JWPlayer (Joomla Plugin) on the same side in exactly the same way. One of them shows up correctly and one is way too small. Like only a fourth of the canvas size.

The support states in another question (
that this might be caused by the (CSS-) template but they lack explaining how to proceed.

Also I can fix it by turning on development mode (alt+cmd C on Safari, Firefox, Chrome), disabling the style property for ".avVideo .avPlayerContainer .avPlayerBlock video" saying "min-width: 320px !important;" and turning it back on.


Does anybody know how to fix the video size or why this is happening?

You would need to partner with a developer in order to make CSS changes on your site. However, I would advise you to try JW 7 and see if the issue persists. If it does, it would certainly confirm that you have custom elements on the page you need to adjust in order to get playback to work as expected.
