Height and width specifications not working with Youtube videos on my blog

    On my blog: http://illwearanycoloraslongasitsblack.wordpress.com, Youtube videos recently stopped stretching to the height and width I specified in the post and are just the typical size as they are on the Youtube website. No idea why this started happening. The code I am putting in is copied exactly from the page WP Support about how to embed videos (with &h for height and &w for width). I’ve tried different browsers, clearing cache, restarting, etc. but it still looks this way. Clearly this is not a life or death situation but I like for all the images to be the same size for aesthetic reasons. If anyone knows what I can do to make them go back to the way they were, please let me know…

    The blog I need help with is illwearanycoloraslongasitsblack.com.

    I’m experiencing the same problem. Seems WordPress.com has disabled the feature, probably trying to convert it to paid service to earn more money???

    I’ll pay, just tell me where to go…. I don’t want my blog looking so crappy :(

    I’m sure it is a temporary glitch. Youtube and the other videos covered by shortcodes I’m certain will stay free, just as they have always have been.

    I have the same problem! It seems that wordpress.com appends “&rel=1&fs=1&showsearch=0&hd=0” to youtube link removing personalized optional parameters.

    I just realised today that all my videos in http://ayumilove.wordpress.com/ are shrink. Thought it was just me, after googling, it seems it affects all wordpress users who used the &w=&h= settings.

    I think they’re trying to fix the issue, or changing some things since my sidebar also all of the sudden got bigger

    I can’t add my Logitec Quickcam video blog to my blog….give me some kind of security violation notice. Anyone else having a similar notice?

    Support wrote me back and when I explained the problem and directed them here yesterday afternoon, I haven’t heard back. Still bummed but I will post here if I get anything back from them.

    I suspect then that they are looking into it. Being the weekend, you might not hear anything back until Monday. There is always the possibility that Youtube has changed something. I know they have in the past on several occasions without letting anyone know they had changed things.
