I'm trying to put in beamer a movie in a two columns document, and center it. However, I found a strange bug that I'm not able to solve.

Here is the output I get:

And here is the output I want:

enter image description here

I tried to use something like \vspace*{-0.2\textheight}, it works to center the picture, but then when I play the movie, the movie is not centered anymore...

Any idea?

MWE

\documentclass[]{beamer}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[francais]{babel}     
\usepackage{multimedia}

\begin{document}
\begin{frame}{Me}
  \begin{columns}
    \begin{column}{.5\textwidth}

    \end{column}

    \begin{column}{.5\textwidth}
      \movie[height = 0.8\textheight, width = \textwidth, showcontrols]{\includegraphics[width=\textwidth,height=\textheight,keepaspectratio]{Videos/qubit_presentation_0001.png}}{Videos/qubit_presentation.mp4}
    \end{column}
  \end{columns}
\end{frame}
\end{document}

and the png used: enter image description here

You image (and I assume also your video) looks more or less quadratic, but with using 0.8\textheight you reserve basically the whole height of the page for it, on the same time you give it about half the page as width, so the image/video will shrink down and occupy only the bottom part of the space you reserved for it.

Try a height more similar to the width, for example height = \textwidth.

\documentclass[]{beamer}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[francais]{babel}     
\usepackage{multimedia}

\begin{document}
\begin{frame}{Me}
  \begin{columns}
    \begin{column}{.5\textwidth}
    \end{column}
    \begin{column}{.5\textwidth}
      \movie[height = \textwidth, width = \textwidth, showcontrols]{\includegraphics[width=\textwidth,height=\textwidth,keepaspectratio]{Xj8Xv}}{test}
    \end{column}
  \end{columns}
\end{frame}
\end{document}
