Stubborn Video Resize

I have been trying to resize a video on my main page for a bit now. The darn thing is stubborn and does not want to cooperate and I was hoping to get some help. If you'd like to take a look, my page is: http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaigns/chitlins-whiskey-and-skirt

The code I am using is from similar discussions in this thread:




Chitlins, Whiskey, and Skirt Intro




Now, other things I have tried: Replacing the quotation marks, checking YouTube for hidden 'do not resize my video' buttons, re-uploading a lower quality video, all the suggestion from similar threads, voodoo, various methods from around the web, and offering my gaming party to Cthulhu if he would just fix it. Any help would be welcome and appreciated. I'm sure it is something I have overlooked or have done just plain wrong.

Thanks for your time and efforts!

    FYI, Micah, iframes aren't blocked in the campaign archives.

    Wish they weren't blocked at all.... would make posting/linking/embedding/controlling videos really easy. Any chance they will be allowed with OP Redux?

    Thanks for the suggestion, but when I put in the code and changed the quotes, nothing changed. I even took out the custom CSS and tried it again and nothing seemed to work.

    Custom css must read the following-
    /*VIDEO SIZE*/
    iframe { max-width: 700px;
    }
    Sent an invite to my test page so you can see it in living color.

    That did it! I shall sing songs in your name! My children will remember your great deeds. My player will be forced to perform a play, re-telling your great deeds. And the people will feast upon the lambs and sloths, and carp and anchovies, and orangutans and breakfast cereals, and fruit-bats and large chu... well, you get the idea. Thanks for help, looks great.

    No worries- it be how we roll...
    Actually, thank Saethone- he is the one that posted the CSS code.

    Awesome! Totally missed the post where Saethone posted this gem. Will add to the CSS FAQ.
