Tropfest miniatures

I finally found some time last night to start watching this year's free Tropfest DVD.

And this is what I found:

(I'm still trying to work out how to make the whole screen show up. If it's driving you nuts watch it on You Tube here)

EDITED TO ADD:
All sorted, thanks to
ahclem's instructions in the comments!

I have a spare copy of the DVD which I'm happy to post anywhere in the world. Leave a comment if you're interested and I'll draw a winner on Saturday.

To make the entire screen show up, find the two places in the embed code (once near the beginning and once near the end) where the screen size appears, e.g, for this vid:

width="560" height="340"

You need the screen to be 400 pixels wide. Divide 400 by the "width" number and multiply the result by the height number. So, in this case, 400/560 = .71. Then .71 x 340 = 243.

Then, in both places where the size appears in the embed code, replace width="560" height="340" with width="400" height="243" and when you embed it, you'll get the entire screen.

Thanks for the clear instructions.

I got halfway there this morning: changed the first set of numbers but didn't notice there was a second set. Which is why I ended up perplexed and frustrated!
