How to make a video responsive

Hi, I found the following code at
This html5 code supposedly makes your videos responsive but not when I add it to my site with the relevant path. Does anyone know how to make videos (mp4) responsive on a Wordpress site?

The code I posted initially always worked, but thanks for your insight and that great article.
