Additional Information – Video Size

To change the video size on the page, there is a drop-down box on YouTube that will let you select different video sizes. You will need to select the size before you copy (Ctrl+C) the embed code.

If your website is responsive, it does not matter if the video size is larger than the area you are inseting it into as it will automatically be scaled down to size.
