    Hi there, first off I love the Pinboard theme! I recently posted a Youtube video link on my site, and I selected the "video" post format. It embeds properly, but when I click the "play" button I see an error message saying "video player too small."

    I'm confused by this, especially since the video plays properly right after displaying this message. Any advice?

    Strangely, I don't receive this error message consistently. Sometimes it comes up and sometimes it doesn't. The strange part is still that the video plays properly whether or not the message comes up first.

  3. Hey. YouTube supports a minimum embed size of 200px by 200px. See: http://apiblog.youtube.com/2012/03/minimum-embeds-200px-x-200px.html. The height of your embed seems to be 201px, just outside of the minimum size set by YouTube, which may be causing this strange behaviour. That's a total guess though as this is outside of my knowledge area.

    The official YouTube API Developer group on StackOverflow may be of greater help to you: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/youtube-api.
