Embed via JavaScript

<script src="https://www.commodity-tv.com/ctvplayer.js"></script>	
<div id="your_id"></div>
<script>
  ctv = new ctvPlayer('your_id',{
    Channel: 'popular', //optional
    width: 960,  //optional in px, default is 640
    height: 540, //not required see notes below but optional in px, default if no width is 360
    addClass: 'embed-responsive-item', //optional inserts a certain class, useful for responsive settings
    //optional options
    options: {
      autoplay: 1, //default is 0
      hidePlaylist: 1, //default is 0
    }
  });
</script>

Note: The integration via Javascript creates an iframe in the given div. The height of the iframe is calculated automatically based on the width and settings. For a responsive implementation you can add your own class to the iframe with 'addClass'.
