Recently upgraded to Pro. Can't get iframe and content to be responsive

I'm trying to embed a simple video webcam view - - which checks out on your frame checking page. No matter how much I play with the width, height, and ratio parameters I can't get it to behave in a responsive manner. 

Ideally, I'd like the whole frame displayed so that the content is reduced to fit the width of whatever browser window is being used.

I found that lazy load stopped anything being displayed, so have ended up with:

[advanced_iframe use_shortcode_attributes_only="true" src="" height="660" width="100%" content_styles="width:100%" enable_responsive_iframe="true" allowfullscreen="true"]

Unfortunately the content is not responsive, I just get scroll bars.

Maybe I've not set something in the many preferences this plugin has, I am finding it very complicated and my brain is a bit frazzled...

Any idea how I can move forward with this?

I do not see any video. Only "Please wait...."

As you say the video page is not responsive please check this:

So you cut out the area you like and then it is zoomed to he size of the browser.

content_styles="width:100%" alone is not a valid configuration.

Hi Michael - sorry about the "Please wait...", the camera link occasionally freezes and Mangocam then disables the particular camera due to too many errors.

Following your advice, I now have it zooming and am delighted:

I ended up with this shortcode:

[advanced_iframe securitykey="your key" use_shortcode_attributes_only="true" src="" id="advanced_iframe" height="680" width="820" show_part_of_iframe="true" show_part_of_iframe_x="1" id="example40" show_part_of_iframe_y="1" show_part_of_iframe_width="800" show_part_of_iframe_height="660" show_part_of_iframe_zoom = "full"]

Possibly some of that is superfluous, but it works.
Thanks a lot for your help!
