Yep, me, too. That’s because of the size of the column.May 2, 2013 at 4:35 AM #692
So if we were able to find a way to change the size of the player it may fit better ? Guess that we will experiment some more ! LOLMay 2, 2013 at 8:39 AM #694
Alternately, your best bet is to just link to the YouTube page rather than embed the video.May 2, 2013 at 10:01 AM #695
Since my experiment did not work to resize, how do I delete a post?May 5, 2013 at 9:37 AM #727May 5, 2013 at 9:38 AM #728
We need to find a way to fit videos to the column. Pretty ridiculous that this format cuts off half of the video players…May 5, 2013 at 9:40 AM #729June 10, 2013 at 10:03 PM #941
It seems there a few different youtube plugins for word press. I’m not sure if this (BBPress 2.3.2) has some kind of limitation or if it’s just a matter of the right plugin. Other forums have had the same issue and though a few have solved the video problem I never see the same options on my profile page. I might try some of the different code examples when I have more time but it’s like shooting in the dark without knowing which plugin we are using. Any info about particulars would be appreciated.June 10, 2013 at 11:03 PM #942
WordPress has built in support for YouTube. I offered my opinion on the likely source of the problem and a probable solution here.June 11, 2013 at 10:56 AM #951
Does that mean any plugin’s youtube size attribute is overruled by the theme code?
Also, with the example code you suggested, do you specify both height and width in the theme or does it allow for the short code where you can set your own dimensions preserving the ratio.

Something like this one would probably work. I suggested adding something to the code but I guess I’m just showing my bias. A plugin would probably be easier to use and maintain. I had read at one point that you should use too many plugins but I just looked that up again and most people say it doesn’t matter as long as they’re well designed. Isn’t that one you linked to just for locally hosted videos?
With the example code, the dimensions would be fixed – the shortcodes would continue to not work. Another reason why an appropriate plugin is probably a better fix.

On an unrelated note, is it just me or are the post times about 45 minutes slow? As I’m typing this it’s 12:19pm EST.
