YouTube has finally realized that websites are becoming responsive and they get viewed on mobile devices. Not before time :)

So big changes to the way you embed YouTube videos.

Apart from the new look you'll discover that there's no list of size options to choose from. That's because WordPress strips out the size and makes the video full width of whatever screen you're viewing on. It encloses the video in a "fluid width video wrapper". That's geek-speak for responsive.

Please watch the video as I walk you through the new way of embedding YouTube videos.

Why not just copy & paste the video url into the post? Simpler & the video will automatically be sized to suit mobile or PC, tablet etc. Whereas if you specify the width etc, then it'll look OK on your PC but won't fit your mobile site. Also avoids using an iframe which can screw up some functionality or javascripts on certain themes.

Thanks for pointing that out Ian. I tried copying and pasting the link but the video then shows suggested videos at the end which encourages visitors to click off my website.

Hey Marion, this is awesome. I've just amended my settings so that it won't show suggested videos. Thanks so much. :)
