Hello Elaine, 

To change the YouTube video size, you will need to copy and paste the YouTube embed code instead of using the YouTube widget.


Here are the steps:

  • Go to YouTube and find the video you want.

  • On the right of the video you will see embed code. Copy the code. Be careful to copy all of it.

  • In Yola, drag an HTML Widget onto your page.

  • A white dialog box will open up. Paste the YouTube embed code. It will look something like this:

    <object width="640" height="385"><param name="movie" value="; <param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><param name="wmode" value="true"></param><embed src="; type="application/x-shockwave-flash"
    allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="640" height="385" wmode="opaque"></embed>

  • Change the two numbers shown for object width and height (object width = "640" height="385") to make the video smaller or bigger.

  • Click "Save".

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