Bootstrap Modal Video Error

Hi Guys, I'm having some issues with bootstrap's modal component.

When I open the Ribbit project in Chrome (Mac) and click on the modal component, the video appears to 'jump up' within the modal viewport, leaving only half of the video showing (the bottom half). The controls for the video (Volume, full screen etc) are still controllable but they have to be controlled from the bottom of the modal component (I am effectively clicking on an empty black area in order to control them).

Surely someone else must have encountered this problem as the code has not been changed from the downloaded version.

Can anyone tell me why this is happening?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks.

Make sure your script tags are correct at the bottom. This only happened to me (bottom half showing though) when I tried adding another script tag.
