    I’m using theme Garland, recently I haven’t hung around my blog much. When I went back, all the embedded videos suddenly became bigger and didn’t fit to the main column anymore: http://thethornsoftheroses.wordpress.com/category/video/
    Is this because of wordpress or youtube?
    I don’t want and don’t have time to change the theme, is there any fast way to make them small again?
    Oh, I’m using 1024*768 resolution

    The blog I need help with is thethornsoftheroses.wordpress.com.

    I’m not sure exactly who is responsible, but others have had this issue show up as well, so it is not theme specific.

    I suggest contacting staff directly at http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/ .

    This is due to some recent changes from YouTube. From our testing it only affects themes with flexible width (where the content width is defined as a fixed number).

    We’ll take a look at the flexible themes and get them fixed up soon so that the videos fit the column correctly.

    @lance-Not in any way connected to the video Post Format ?

    @justjennifer Not that I know of. It’s a change in default size for video embeds. It only affected a few themes that didn’t have a set width.

    hi Just found this thread….I see that we are told it was fix but my videos are still huge and break the template. Is the a rolling fix?
