I was wondering if this needed to be updated to support the new Youtube video scale format (16:9). Anything posted using the [ youtube ] tag automatically seems to get scaled to 4:3.

Just a suggestion. :)

Embed code still uses a 4:3 player (their code, not ours) but it will just letterbox widescreen content.

Could we get the widescreen player?, the new size is 855*505 (compared to whatever it was before)

YouTube are still providing the 4:3 embedding code because, reportedly, there are issues with embedded widescreen players. So will wait this one out for now.

I haven't had any problems with making the player widescreen, but I didn't need to use half the code he does.

That makes the player play back the video at it's native (720p) res, without issue.

When it was first released it didn't let you just change the height/width (Flash letterboxed it) but if they've released an update there I'll look into it. However I won't be automatically adding the whole &fmt=22 prefix in order to force full res, as for many users with slower connections it's just not practical
