Youtube in Widescreen?

  1. Hi,

    I was wondering if someone could tell me how to get a youtube video to display in widescreen on my blog, I am new to wordpress and I can get the video to display but i can't figure out how to get it to show in widescreen.
    I am using this code:

    <object width="640" height="385"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/C6RU5y2fU6s&hl=en_US&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/C6RU5y2fU6s&hl=en_US&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="640" height="385"></embed></object>

    Which wordpress converts to:

    [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C6RU5y2fU6s&hl=en_US&fs=1]

    Not sure if I have to buy something extra or if I am just doing something wrong.

    Thank you

    My blog is nokism.com

    The blog I need help with is nokism.com.

  2. From the WordPress Support article about YouTube:

    To play HD video with specific width and height:

    [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H2Ncxw1xfck&w=480&h=360&hd=1]
