There are many reasons for being concerned how your embedded Youtube videos are displayed to your members. I once showed you a hack for how to embed Youtube videos with the Youtube Logo
Keep in mind that YouTube's player is in 16x9 wide-screen format. If you want to change the dimensions, do so using a 16:9 aspect ratio and add 25px in height for the player controls. For example, lets say that you needed the video to be 320px wide:
--> 320(9)=Height(16) and then add 25px
--> Height=180 + 25 = 205px
Youtube already allows you to customize the embed code and allows the videos to play in HD, but in case you were wondering what the codes were for this and/or how to force play back of high-quality files (not HD);
Show in High-Definition 720p
Show in High-Quality
Here is an example embed code using the high-quality "hack"
<object width= "425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/MDedb1Kgjys&ap=%2526fmt%3D18" /><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" /><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/MDedb1Kgjys&ap=%2526fmt%3D18" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="false" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>

sweetpotato personally i have always found that unless your network is a video sharing network and it is entirely necessary, i would leave all videos off of the homepage. ive even gone so far as to make a screenshot of a video with play button then link it to an internal video because it is the slowest loader on a home page..thats just my 2 cents
otherwise try using a player like Jplayer
cheers JFarrow. I have one spot that I sell so I'm kind of stuck with it. i'll check out Jplayer
did you have any luck with Jplayer integration SP?
What does it mean "Turn off Search" ?
By default on all YouTube videos, that really annoying search bar always pops up at the end, allowing people to search for videos by OTHER people!
I never saw that. Did you?
Attention, &cc_load_policy=1 code to display captions and not to close them!
Very usefull trick but the full-screen doesn't work with it :
i believe it does actually
