Recently I had problems resizing a YouTube video to fit a blog. Luckily, I found a great tip on Gadgetizer.com on how to do this:
I hope the above helps out other webmasters who are also not in the know about resizing YouTube videos.1. Grab the embeddable flash player code for your desired video and look for all instances of width=Ã¢â‚¬Â425″ height=Ã¢â‚¬Â350″ within that code.
2. Change the height and width attributes while preserving the H/W Ratio so the video doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t become distorted. Since IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m mathematically lazy challenged, I simply used a photo editing program to make a 425 wide by 350 high blank image, then used itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s resizing tool to make the width the same as my blogÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s content column.
