My Study Notebook Video Tutorials - I changed the video size on the webpage

Postby BaldSpot » Sun Jul 22, 2012 10:49 am

I have a 27" monitor. When I tried to view the My Study Notebook video tutorials, the videos were too small, and there was no button to enlarge them. I had to find the videos in YouTube to see them at a usable size.

But then, in going back to the Help page where I originally found the videos, I noticed an "Edit" link for each one, and I found myself able to edit the code for displaying the videos. I changed the size (480 to 960) and hit Save and it saved. :confused:

I was confused about why I could edit the web page, thinking something was wrong. After posting this message, I see I was premature in posting a question. I'll shut up now. Sorry for the inconvenience. I just wish I could delete this message.

Although I can see why you wanted to make the videos bigger, your edits were not appropriate for the design of the page, so I reverted your changes. Your changes made the inline videos so big that they extended outside the designed width of the page, and would not be reasonable on smaller monitors. Edits to a wiki page need to consider the needs of the broader community, not just those with extra large monitors.

You can always view the videos on YouTube and then go to full screen mode from there.
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.
