after becoming frustrated about having only two viewing size choices (standard/small or fullscreen) for watching ALL online videos, i thought it time to experiment...

it looks like you can just take the embed codes for any video, paste it into your browsers address bar, remove any of the embed tags that surround the url, then hit enter.

you'll then have the embedded video playing back in your browser - simply resize your browser to resize the video.

this is so simply it's probably been mentioned hundreds of times online already, but it was new to me. kind of obvious too when you realise pretty much all online vids have embed codes.

Major disclaimer up-front: I am not a programmer, not a script writer, and/or not a "codemonkey" in any way, shape or form.

Now that the disclaimer is out of the way, to my neophyte mind this sounds like it'd make a great GreaseMonkey script.

hmm, thanks for mentioning them, but i can't get either to do anything useful - certainly not resizeing the video. after 15 minutes of clicking on the various options i think i'll stick with the manual method. maybe they don't work with firefox 3...?

heheh.

well, maybe they could, at least, serve as a starting point. i'll try and look through the scripts to see if it makes any sense to me.
