Just playing with Camtasia ( juts got my version full blown for $49.99 for Mac ) with a coupon code I have .. anyhoo thats another story ;)

So anyway I have created a video is HD, and I am embedding at specific size: 940px x 529px

I realise youtube tries to force the correct resolution based on the embed size.. but it is defaulting to 480p

So wondered if there was a way to force the video to play natively in 720p without increasing the video x and y sizes.

I have tried a few different hacks going around but none seem to want to play ball .. has anyone managed to force youtube vids to play at HD on smaller embeds than 1280×720

One way round this was just to launch the Video in Modal window. Which isnt that bad.. but not really what I wanted to achieve

There’s a custom size area when using embed using older code.

You can also change the sizing within the code – it’s in 2 places.

Yes i know, however nowadays either method you cannot declare to display in HD. so gotta opt for largest video size.

I suppose those developers who whack huge youtube vids on page, they dont notice it so much.

Typical code:

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/ykNgti8EaY?rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

So youtube, matches the video width and height above with the appropriate ( it thinks ) definition / resolution .. which is fine, but cannot over ride it.

Its cool, just fire a HD link modal below the vid in HD.
