Hi Marcela,

You can change the size of the YouTube video, but you need to copy and paste the YouTube embed code instead of using the YouTube widget.

Here are the steps:

1) Go to YouTube and find the video you want.
2) On the right of the video you will see embed code. Copy the code. Be careful to copy all of it.
3) In Yola, drag an HTML widget onto your page.
4) A white dialog box will open up. Paste the YouTube embed code. It will look something like this:

<object width= "425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="https://www.youtube.com/v/__DrJI7mTHQ&hl=en&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="https://www.youtube.com/v/__DrJI7mTHQ&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>

5) Change the two numbers shown for object width and height (object width = "425" height="344") to make the video smaller or bigger.
6) Click "OK"

The video with the altered size will then be embedded in your page.
