    Next up on my hit list is my very own blog

    Embedded video is being somehow resized in my posts.  Here’s the latest http://areweconnected.com/social-media/chasing-rodriguez/

    The baffling part is that it doesn’t happen all the time – here’s a post that the video is at the full pixel width I wanted.  http://areweconnected.com/social-media/the-guest-post-club/

    I’ve tried both the iframe style of youtube code and the old style code like
    <object width=”560″ height=”315″><param name=”movie” value=”http://www.youtube.com/v/EpNqSPHgIYw?hl=en_US&amp;version=3&amp;rel=0″></param><param name=”allowFullScreen” value=”true”></param><param name=”allowscriptaccess” value=”always”></param><embed src=”http://www.youtube.com/v/EpNqSPHgIYw?hl=en_US&amp;version=3&amp;rel=0″ type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” width=”560″ height=”315″ allowscriptaccess=”always” allowfullscreen=”true”></embed></object>
    Baffled, I am.

    Are you entering the code in “text mode?”

    Can you try the iFrame code again on there so I can see what that looks like?

    Try this one without the extra code after the question mark (?)

    Crap!

    [code]<iframe width="560" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/EpNqSPHgIYw&quot; frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>[/code]

    I see what you are trying to do but nope – that won’t work. :(

    In fact it tries to iframe in my home page

    The only other thing I can think of is to remove all code and just place the URL on the page in Text mode. In one of the upgrades they made it possible to just add the URL and it will convert it. Try adding that, save it and let’s look at that. There’s something kooky with that page! :)

    Open up the code and right before the source (SRC) insert this:

    width=”100%” height=”400px”

    I can edit the code with Firebug and it goes full width.

    Thanks for the help – just did so the iframe embed code looks like
    <iframe src=”http://www.youtube.com/embed/EpNqSPHgIYw?rel=0″ height=”400″ width=”100%” allowfullscreen=”” frameborder=”0″></iframe>
    Still, something is overriding the sizing.  This is fun, eh?

    Try this (LOL)… create another post – copy and paste the code in there and view it DRAFT. See if it does the same thing in a new post.

    It does.

    I am writing a new post now.  Added the embed code (in text mode), saved the draft, then switched to visual mode.  The video shows as a full size box in the content area and when I ‘preview’ the post – it’s the same small video.

    Re-copy it in Text and save it draft – don’t switch back to Visual at all… just save in Text and view it. Did you create the post that “works right” before or after you created this one?

    Just for you!

    As for creating the post before or after – the one that worked was one that I created before the issue.  Yet I can go back a few years and find videos that are doing the same thing.  I know it’s not a random thing but it’s working that way.
