XF 1.2 Wider YouTube videos


Active member
Hello All,
Currently when I copy/paste a YouTube video into a post, it posts the video at the stock size of 560 width. When I am creating a news posts it would look much nicer if I could have the video fit the width of my column. Is there a way to change the 560x315 standard video width to 850x478?

If any XenForo pros can tell me how to do this it would be greatly appreciated!

Admin CP -> Home -> BB Code Media Sites -> YouTube -> Embed HTML:

This is what I have in mine:

<iframe width="640" height="400" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/{$id}?vq=hd1080" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
Adjust as needed.
