Okay.. I have been working all day and I have tried very hard to not create a forum post because I hate being that guy that re-posts an already covered topic. I've had no luck so I am posting now.
I am simply trying to upload a youtube video to a page in my website. The problem I am having is that the embed code from youtube is being ignored. When capturing the embed code from Youtube I set the size to 560x315. Now.. when I preview it in my blog the video is size all the way across the page and not to the dimentions that I specified.
Here is an example from my website of what is happening:
I want this video to be half the size and I can not make it any smaller.
I turned off/deleted any YouTube related widget that I have and I have also tried to use the shortcode [&w=560], etc.. and still no luck.
Any suggestions how to make the videos resize to the specific dimensions? I am using Mantra theme and perhaps that is what is causing the problem?? Thanks so much for your time!
