How to resolve video framing issues between YouTube and WordPress (3 posts)

    I embed video with on my WordPress site - http://www.insignia-motor-yachting.tv. I upload my videos first to YouTube, and then grab the embed code. When I play on YouTube, my videos play and are framed perfectly. However, when I embed on my WordPress site, I get black bars down the side of the screen. If I click 'play on YouTube', the video reverts to playing perfectly framed on YouTube.

    Here is an example: http://www.insignia-motor-yachting.tv/2011-southampton-boat-show-report-steeler-yachts-a-floating-range-rover-or-a-boat-for-drug-dealers/

    I have tried using the various frame size options for the embed options, and I have tried manually altering the frame size in the embed code, but nothing seems to work.

    Yeh, somehow, after posting this I fixed it. I was downloading plug-ins, changing this and that, and suddenly it was working fine. I have no idea what I did that fixed it, which is really frustrating for when/if it happens again.

    Thanks anyway.
