Hi, i am in the middle of designing a website and i need to create an area to insert a YouTube video...
All the videos on YouTube seem to be 640px X 385px HOWEVER the give you an embed option of 640px X 480px
This is a bit confusing... what size space should i allow for, thanks in advance for your help...

I don't know for sure, but the extra height might be for the controls. If the embed option they give you is 640x480 then that's what you should plan for...

As far as I know you can alter the dimensions of the iframe as you like. The video+player dynamically change in dimension depending on the size of the iframe. Although it's smart to keep the height:width ratio of the iframe intact. That way you don't end up with too much of a black background either at the sides of the video.
