    Hello, thanks for your plugin!
    The old version is very good. After update to the newest version, the video player size became small. How to fix?
    Test site here:

    Note: I have updated it one time and get error 500 due to server. I used ftp and dellete the plugin folder. => Install the plugin again. It’s ok, but a small problem: the video size too small!!
