Wix Video – Smaller Sizes


As a Wix Designer, I have run into this question about Wix videos:

"How come I can't make my video smaller on my Wix Website?"

This is usually because my website design clients are trying to make their videos smaller than the limits. There are size limitations currently in Wix's three video embedding options:

Wix's YouTube videos can't go smaller than 200 px high – you can reduce the width and make it more square, but black bars appear if unproportional to the video size. Wix Video's compact version won't go smaller than 400px wide x 266 high.

The smallest video option in Wix is to use Vimeo. Vimeo videos on Wix pages allow smaller sizes down to 171 x 100 pixels high.

Smallest Video Sizes on Wix: Vimeo Video: 171 x 100 pixels high (smallest option)

YouTube Wix Video: 200 px high (width can vary)

Wix Video: 400 x 266 px high

Hopefully they'll add the ability to make their Wix videos smaller in the future, along with YouTube videos. But for now, if you really need to have a tiny video on your website, embedding a Vimeo video is your best bet.


As a website designer and graphic designer, I love sharing great tips and tools that make designing easier. As part of my website design services, I train clients on how to update their websites or to do their own SEO (search engine optimization), so I post many of these tips for my clients to train them how to use Wix and other tools to keep their website up-to-date. Keeping websites current is the best way to get found and to keep people coming back to your website.
