This issue was a combination of the service that supplies the videos not being consistent in their usage of "720" in denoting resolutions, and that our existing styling for shrinking the videos was not actually doing anything (it just looked good because the videos where already small from the service). More specifically, the video host gives videos in 720x407, which is not standard for a 720p video, and denotes all the "working" sites in the ticket. The other host,, gives videos in 1280x720, or actual 720p, and thus appears overlong when the previous styling didn't stymie the width.
