A project I’m working on now involves redesigning an existing site, and converting it to a responsive design using the Bootstrap framework. One part of the home page has a list of video thumbnail images. We wanted to overlay a play button icon on the image to give an indication of what will happen when a user clicks on a thumbnail. This is pretty simple when you have a fixed size image, but it gets a little trickier with responsive images. The trick to making it work was adding a float to the containing element.
Here’s a demo with source code: responsive video play button demo.
