  <a href="">
    <div>7 Modified Yoga Poses with a Yoga Wheel</div>

3. Create the HTML for the Youtube popup player.

  display: none;
  background: rgba(0, 0, 0, .8);
  position: fixed;
  width: 100%;

  z-index: 20;
  left: 0;
  top: 0;

/* video player */

#mPlayer DIV {
  position: fixed;
  background: #000;
  width: 560px; /* width of YouTube Player */
  height: 315px; /* height of YouTube Player */
  left: calc(50vw - 280px); /* 280 is .5(560), centers x axis*/
