By default, the size for any embedded YouTube video is 485 x 295, but since you want to resize YouTube videos that you want to post on your website, you can do it in two ways:

Edit the embed code

  • Copy the embed code in YouTube, paste into notepad or text editor. Look out for the width and height in the code. Take note that the width and the height appear twice in the code, so we have to change both.

  • Remember that the standard embedded video size is 485 by 295 so to make the videos smaller, we have to change the width and height value but still maintaining the aspect ratio. If you don’t know what aspect ratio is, divide 480/295.

  • Now, we find out that the aspect ratio  is 1.627 – Let’s assume you want the width of the video to be 300px, All you have to do is divide 300 by 1.627 so, 300/1.627 = 185.

  • So the height is 185px. So now you go back to the original embed code and make the necessary adjustments.

Or you can simply resize your video within YouTube

Look for the Customize button next to the embed code. Among the Customize options is resizing the video. Compared to the first method, you can only have three sizes to choose from. Also, be careful in resizing YouTube videos, resizing it too small or too large can make affect the video quality.

The simplest way in resizing your uploaded YouTube videos is to look for the place holder image of the video, then click it. When this image border becomes wrapped, wait for small boxes to appear at the sides, and then hold your mouse over the corner boxes. When the cursor change, click and drag to resize. A better image proportion is achieved when you hold down the Shift key while you click and drag.

Another way is playing a little math on the HTML code. On the embed code of the video, find this: object width="425" height="344". This refers to the video size, and then you can resize it by changing the numbers. For example, when you like 50% of its original size just multiply the width and height by .50(your desired size) just like the one below:

           Width: 425 x .5 = 212

                           Height: 344 X .5 = 172.
