In which I provide a link that compares HD video web page embedding options.
The design of this blog means I can’t show how large HD video embeds can be on web pages you control can be. This (non-designed*) page on my site compares size and quality between YouTube and Vimeo HD video.
The maximum embed size for YouTube is 853 by 480 and the service is free. If you pay $60 for the Vimeo ‘Plus’ service, you get 25,000 HD embedded plays at 1280 by 720.
