In our continued efforts to streamline website setup with NationBuilder, we've just released a new feature for resizing your YouTube and Vimeo videos with our Embed.ly integration.

Does this new code work with just YouTube videos or with all content from embed.ly? If just YouTube, are other services (SlideShare, etc) on the way?
