Add External Stylesheets/Pens

Any URL's added here will be added as <link>s in order, and before the CSS in the editor. If you link to another Pen, it will include the CSS from that Pen. If the preprocessor matches, it will attempt to combine them before processing.

Babel is required to process package imports. If you need a different preprocessor remove all packages first.

Add External Scripts/Pens

Any URL's added here will be added as <script>s in order, and run before the JavaScript in the editor. You can use the URL of any other Pen and it will include the JavaScript from that Pen.

  // What's the min:intrinsic dimensions
  // The idea is to get which of the container dimension
  // has a higher value when compared with the equivalents
  // of the video. Imagine a 1200x700 container and
  // 1000x500 video. Then in order to find the right balance
  // and do minimum scaling, we have to find the dimension
  // with higher ratio.
  // Ex: 1200/1000 = 1.2 and 700/500 = 1.4 - So it is best to
  // scale 500 to 700 and then calculate what should be the
  // right width. If we scale 1000 to 1200 then the height
  // will become 600 proportionately.
  var widthRatio = minW / w

  // has to be done over that dimension
