Technology: Resize a YouTube Video to Fit Your Needs
1 Comment

You may want to add video to your Website or blog to jazz it up and keep people engaged longer. Did you try it and didn’t like the way it looked? Perhaps it didn’t fit your layout.

By default, YouTube videos may be larger than you need. You can easily resize them to fit your design by changing the width and height in the Embed code (located to the right of the video).

Note: Computer code makes me dizzy too so just relax. You can do this.
Example: <object width=”425″ height=”350″ … 

1) Copy and paste the code as you normally would. 

Change to <object width=”213″ height=”175″
Or <object width=”134″ height=”107″
Or whatever fits your space.

2) Experiment until you reach the desired size, keeping the height and width in proportion.

  1. I assumed it was going to be some boring previous web site, but I’m glad I visited. I’ll publish a link to this website on my blog. I believe my guests will find that very useful.
