I was able to center a div which contains a <video> but I am also trying to center the video tag as far as height is concerned.  So, how do you center the height in the middle of your page?

Well if you are using <video> then you are supporting  modern HTML5 browsers that should also be supporting the CSS calc() function and the viewport relative units of neasure so you should be able apply what is on this page that contains practical examples using calc()

Hi COBOLdinosaur, I attempted to use the example but for some reason was unable to get to work.  Here is my markup as of yet:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
    
    <style type="text/css">
        html {
    position: relative;
    min-width: 1024px;
    min-height: 768px;
    height: 100%;
}

        #videostyle {
            margin-left:auto; 
            margin-right:auto;
            margin-top:auto;
            margin-bottom:auto;
            height:480px;
            width:854px;            
        }
    </style>
    <title>Test Page</title>
</head>
<body>
    <div id="videostyle">
        <video id="vidintro" autoplay="autoplay" width="854" height="480" contenteditable="false">
            <source src="web.mp4" type="video/mp4" />            
            Your browser does not support the video tag.
        </video>
    </div>
    <script type="text/javascript">
        var vid = document.getElementById("vidintro");
        vid.controls = true;    
    </script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
        var vid = document.getElementById("vidintro");
        vid.onended = function () {            
            location.href = "http://www.testsite.com";
        }
    </script>
</body>
</html>

I don't see where you are applying anything that would center vertically, and do analysis of the page we really need a link so we can use diagnostic tools.
