How do I resize an embeded flash video?

by on November 22, 2009

Q: I’m trying to resize a video for my profile page. I’ve done it before but I accidentally deleted the info. Here is the code:

<div><embed src=”″ quality=”high” scale=”noscale” width=”600″ height=”526″ wmode=”transparent” name=”FLVPlayer” salign=”LT” flashvars=”&p=2468f3400a0d8b133e9d22&skin_id=601&host=” type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” pluginspage=””></embed><div style=”margin:0px;font:12px/13px verdana,arial,sans-serif;line-height:20px;padding-bottom:15px;width:600px;text-align:center;”><a href=”″ target=”_blank” style=”text-decoration:none;”>Make photo slide shows at <span style=”text-decoration:underline;”></span></a></div></div>

I know the first width and height will change the size of the box but the video stays the same size. How do I change the video size as well as the bounding box?

    Normally you would change the width, height, and scale but when I did that it did not work. After an hour of testing, searching, and more testing I figured out that in this case you need to change the flashvars string. The specific part of the flashvars is “skin_id=601”. You just need to change the 601 to the width you want. So if you want it to be smaller you can change it to 400, 320, or any other value you need until it fits.


    Thank you very much, it works! 🙂
