I am embedding a picasa video into an article on my joomla site. The width of the video is too wide for my site. How can I change it.

Currently, the code looks like this:

{iframe}http://picasaweb.google.com/duane.whitcomb.music/Joah?authkey=Gv1sRgCM7lqaCEwdzvhwE&feat=directlink{/iframe}

Any ideas?

The size of the video is controlled by Picasa and therefore you cannot resize it. However what you can do is place a small still picture from the video on your page that is linked to the url of the video. When it is clicked the video opens in a light box. You just have to install this extension to get it working.

fearialtog,
good advice! i didn't realize you couldn't shrink them down. I tried to use the extension you linked to, but it gave me a missing xml file on the install. I found another lightbox plug-in and it looks great. Thanks for making my site better!
