New embed options for regular 4:3 videos

And for regular videos on YouTube that aren’t available in the Widescreen format, you are no longer limited to the default 425x355 dimensions for embedding as there’re a couple of new player size choices available like 640x505 and 320x265. Hat tip Stagueve.
