    I believe embeds are being reworked right now, so that will probably be in 2.6 or 2.7

    Interestingly, just adding this CSS (e.g. in a custom stylesheet)

    .Video.YouTube .VideoPreview img {
        height: 315px !important;
 just fine for YouTube videos. The preview image will be stretched, but the player adjusts itself to the preview dimensions.

    thx in the meantime i also found this trick to stretch the preview and player.
    it will be a great thing if we can adjust the size of media player directly in the options.

    @bozoleclown do you mean that you found a solution to the stretched preview image with the css styling? Is there a way to resize the video with stretching the preview?

    i found an other solution but the result is the same, the player is 16:9 and the preview is a 4:3 image generated by youtube stretched to 16:9
    it's not perfect but it's work.
