How to resize your video

Have you ever needed to resize a video you were embedding, but just couldn’t figure out how to get the correct ratio?  

It’s happened to me before.  If you need to change the videos size, you can: do nothing about it, and risk having a video that’s too big or small on your site; you can guess the aspect ratio, and risk having a video that looks a little off; or you can use the simple tool in this tutorial to get it right (I have to thank Chip Dizard for this one.).

On a side note: Chip and I have been working on the site, and think you’ll really enjoy the Member’s Dashboard. There are Webinars and interviews that are well worth your time, and more are coming.

Please register and check out what we’ve done.  Everything is free, and there’s a link to the Proportional Scaler in the Resources area.
