    To get the best performance possible for video playback, it's best to use dimensions that can be divided by 16 ... like 512px x 288px for the video content.
    Finally add player bar vertical dimension if necessary (like 25px for Youtube).

    Video Encoding is done in blocks of 8 or 16px, depending on the codec used. Decoding is much faster when the target display size fits into this 8 or 16px raster, so the decoder doesn't have to unnecessarily re-scale the video image.

    Change Vimeo video dimensions to 512 x 288 (playback controls are superimposed)
    Change Youtube video dimensions to 512 x 313 (512 x 288 plus 25px player bar)

    Personally though I think embedded media sizes are a personal preference.
    Mine for example, will be much bigger than the dimensions you have suggested.

    I have just suggested a size that is close to the default (to make it the new default because of the reasons I mentioned).
    You can of course make them much bigger or smaller, as you like. My explanation regarding the 16px raster still applies.
