Image is everything and Video is King! Instead of just copying and pasting the default YouTube video embed code on your website or blog, add a fancy border to create a better visual effect!
I wrote this article before YouTube starting to force width on mobile phones… use with caution. I kept this post only because you can still use this technique for other things such as tables and form. I would not recommend for YouTube videos anymore and always test it first on mobile.>
For the style codes to change border colors on images and tables please see How to Change Border Colors
One fairly simple thing you can do to give your YouTube videos a better visual look on your website or blog is to add fancy borders around your video. You can change the color, border style and width to give you a variety of different looks by adding a ‘style’ code.
