#52741 new defect (bug)

Video embeds (YouTube and Wistia) do not show on page.

When adding a Wistia video embed using the Gutenberg editor's "embed" block the video embed does not show in the page. Upon inspection of the DOM, I noticed that if you toggle the .wp-block-embedwrapper from position: relative to off the video shows.

The offending CSS style is located "/wp-includes/css/dist/block-library/style.css" on line: 502. I've simply deleted this style and the embed seems to work again without any issues across browsers and devices.

To reproduce the issue, create a new post and add an embed block in between a heading and above a paragraph. Paste in a Wisitia video link and save.

@kevinwoodfield Thanks for this ticket, and welcome to Trac!

Would you be able to provide a few Wistia video links to test this out with? I've done some searching, but I haven't been able to figure out how to find a Wistia video link.

This will need to be reported upstream on the Gutenberg GitHub repository, as it will need to be fixed there before it can be fixed in WordPress Core, but including some test links would help open a more detailed report for the team there. I'm happy to handle that for you, but if you have a GitHub account and you'd like to do that yourself, feel free!
