video embeds- Ability to resize video so it shows player
We are having trouble viewing video embedded as Rick Media Objects. They run fine in Internet Explorer (after the extra step of installing ActiveX), but are either not viewed or not visible if looked at through other browsers. And, it doesn't work at all on a Mac, only on a PC. This needs to be as easy to use as other features on the website. Teachers should not have to start working with HTML code in order to have their videos play.

This is a very needed feature. We receive sooo many complaints about this. If you use Firefox or Safari you can not resize your video without going into the html code. This is not realistic at all for teachers and webmasters can't be responsible for posting every video staff wants to post. To add to this, there is not a reasonable work around if you are a Mac user. If you use a PC, you can use IE but there is not a work around on a Mac which should increase the priority of the feature request. Posting video gives editors enough grief. Sizing the video should be easy.

Add the ability to specify the size when using the Insert Rich Media tool.
This video player should also be embeddable via a simple script as any other online video sharing service. This is the one thing that is keeping us from using our locally-hosted Schoolwires site as a full-on video server for high resolution video for PD, etc.
