Get Responsive Embed Codes For YouTube, Instagram, Google Maps & Vimeo

Embedding web content such as YouTube videos is pretty easy, since the service gives you the embed code and you need only paste it. The problem is, if you're pasting the link into a website that has a responsive design, the video frame will not resize because the embed code itself is not responsive. Same goes for embeds from Google Maps, Vimeo, and Instagram. If you know how to, you can always edit the code yourself to make it responsive, but a much faster and easier way to do is by using Embed Responsively. It’s a web app dedicated to providing you with responsive embed codes for content on services like YouTube, Vimeo, Google Maps, and Instagram. Read More
