Hello,

I'm having issues getting adequate spacing between two DIV elements.  I want to put more space between the <div class="yt_holder"> and the <div id="ytvideo2"></div>.  Any ideas on the best way to accomplish this?

		$(function() {
			$("ul.demo2").ytplaylist({addThumbs:true, autoPlay: false, holderId: 'ytvideo2', allowFullScreen:true});
		});

<style type="text/css">
.demo2 {
float:left;
margin:0;

Hi,

One way to do this is define another
<div style="width:20px;height:100%;"></div>

Open in new window

tags between the <ul> and the <div id="ytvideo2"> tags and set the float:right; for the ytvideo2. That way, you always have a fixed spacing on the center between the links and the video.
