I'm keeping a research diary of my thesis project in the Wordpress blog site of the university: cvcinema.blogs.upv.es
There is a tutorial showing how to easily embed vimeo videos on Wordpress: http://en.support.wordpress.com/videos/vimeo/ . However, in my blog the videos where always shown in 4:3 aspect with letterbox.
As I keep posting with embedded Vimeo videos in rare aspect ratios, I wanted to manually set the size of the videos shown in the blog.
I looked for some info about it without success. The only info I found about the subject told to put the size this way:
[vimeo vimeo_link w=desired_width&h=desired_height]
But this didn't work.
Then I just tryed to write it as it would be html inside the brackets like this:
[vimeo vimeo_link width=desired_width height=desired_height]
[vimeo http://vimeo.com/18908525 width="480" height="135"]
And it worked!!!
Have a look here to see the results.
