Has anyone had any success embedding videos directly from youtube into the sidebar? I can do this in actual posts, but when I try to use the same process in the widget, it doesn't seem to work. I'd use the vodpod tool, but visually, none of its options are big enough for what I want. Unfortuantely, I can't share an example with you because I can't make the site public yet... Any help would be appreciated! Thanks.

This has been asked and answered many times before. The answer is : You cannot post a Youtube video in your sidebar except by using the Vodpod widget.
P.S. Will you please use the search utility in the future and only post to the forum when you cannot find results?
Tx and happy blogging. :)
The gigya shortcode 1 – inserting videos
You can insert a youtube video directly in your sidebar in any size you want without using vodpod.
Um, caveat as mentioned in that post @sanjidas linked to: any size you want that doesn't exceed the width of your sidebar.
