Resizing the embed player
We’ve noticed that some users feel it difficult to resize the embed player to fit in their blog posts or websites. We will be coming up soon with a standard size for the embed player so that it fits well in most blogs and websites. A temporary solution is to make changes in width and height in the embed code. All you have to do is to make changes in width and height at two places.
width="481" height="402" >
<param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always" />
<param name="allowfullscreen" value="true" />
width="481" height="402" allowscriptaccess="always"

To get better results make adjustments to width and height in such a way that they remain in the same proportion (Height=Width*5/6). For example width=”299″ height=”250”, width=”358″ height=”299″ etc.
Embed not working?
We also had queries from few users regarding authorSTREAM embed not working on some blogs. authorSTREAM embed code doesn’t work on WordPress, Yahoo groups, Yahoo 360 because they modify original embed code.
Embed code in Yahoo
We contacted Yahoo in this regard and following is their reply:
” Thank you for your report of this issue. Due to the recent announcement on transitioning Yahoo! 360, the development team is focusing all of its resources on building a new universal Yahoo! Profile with blogging solutions which we are certain will delight you. Because we are focusing our efforts on the new solution, this bug will not be resolved prior to the transition of Yahoo! 360.”
