Thanks! It would be nice if the online tutorials were updated to reflect this.

I put my help files online and one of them includes a youTube video in Flash format. The video plays at half size. I don’t know if this is a bug, but I have a Mac with a retina display (running Parallels 9), and an external monitor that’s not a retina display. All of the regular Livecode cards display fine, but the youTube video is about half size. The text is at the expected size. I just use the embed code provided by youTube. It is:
