           medium="video" type="video/mp4" duration="80" width="720" fileSize="1020"/>
   <media:content
           url="https://mcd-fl.playbuzz.com/video/upload/v1490095101/landscape2d904e3d-8d90-441c-be66-39ba450113ed_1584547379303.mp4"
           medium="video" type="video/mp4" duration="80" width="1080" fileSize="100200"/>
   <media:thumbnail
           url="https://mcd.playbuzz.com/video/upload/so_4/v1490095101/landscape2d904e3d-8d90-441c-be66-39ba450113ed_1584547379303.jpg"/>
</media:group>

.mp4 file, without width attribute


<media:group>
   <media:content
           url="https://mcd-fl.playbuzz.com/video/upload/sp_hd/v1490095101/landscape2d904e3d-8d90-441c-be66-39ba450113ed_1584547379303.mp4"
           medium="video" type="video/mp4" duration="80" fileSize="1020"/>
   <media:content
           url="https://mcd-fl.playbuzz.com/video/upload/v1490095101/landscape2d904e3d-8d90-441c-be66-39ba450113ed_1584547379303.mp4"
           medium="video" type="video/mp4" duration="80" fileSize="100200"/>
   <media:thumbnail
