Video size in Mobile Player on iPad showing up 1/4 size

Jun 06, 2013

We have a course that contains videos that are hosted through Brightcove.

They have provided us with code that we plug into our course at a size we requested.

The videos work fine when viewed in a standard browser, however when they are viewed on an iPad using the mobile player, they show up at about 1/4 the size. Our client is not very happy about this, as viewing these courses on an ipad is very important to them.

Any ideas on how to fix this problem?

Thanks, Jason.

Here is the code they provided:

<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

<object id="myExperience2330053103001" class="BrightcoveExperience">

  <param name="bgcolor" value="#FFFFFF" />

  <param name="width" value="480" />

  <param name="height" value="284" />

  <param name="playerID" value="2226130226001" />

  <param name="playerKey" value="AQ~~,AAAB1CkjfHE~,AGspJ5A143ZAV_RpEO_Z8Y5JociaPvAJ" />

  <param name="isVid" value="true" />

  <param name="isUI" value="true" />

  <param name="dynamicStreaming" value="true" />

  <param name="@videoPlayer" value="2330053103001" />



This script tag will cause the Brightcove Players defined above it to be created as soon

as the line is read by the browser. If you wish to have the player instantiated only after

the rest of the HTML is processed and the page load is complete, remove the line.


<script type="text/javascript">brightcove.createExperiences();</script>

Hi there Jason, 

I'm afraid I can't offer any help with the JavaScript. However, you might get some feedback if you post your question over in the Building Better Courses section of the forums. 

You may also want to mention "JavaScript" in the title, so our community experts will be able to spot the topic :)

Thanks and good luck on the project!
