Hello everyone, first post to this forum.

I am working on my campaign and I want to incorporate YouTube videos in it, I use the code window and enter the embed code with the size tag but Indiegogo does not retain video size when I go back to WYSIWYG view and I end up with very narrow YouTube videos on my page.

Does anyone have a solution for this, or a URL to a tutorial, the Indiegogo help page on video is very limited, maybe they should cover this?

Thanks for any replies!

Hello again, since no one was able to answer my question, I had to find a workaround and decided to share it with everyone!

Simple, I made a single image capture of the different videos, scaled them down to 500px X 281px, added a small, YouTube like icon in the middle of each images, added the images to my page, then added a link with _blank target to the matching YouTube videos so the videos open in a different tab, looks pretty decent actually!
