//$alt = preg_match_all('/(width|height)=("[^"]*")/i', $embed, $matches);

$embed = preg_replace('/(width)=("[^"]*")/i', 'width="200"', $embed);

    Hi Sandeep,

    I came across your blog related to a search I was doing on the AWS site. I have a new web effort that I am beginning to plan. I would like to get more insight into the kind of projects you have worked on, what is your specialties, and, get an idea as to how much you charge.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    I tried to send you an email via gmail. I am posting here too.

    hello Sandeep. i found you, not by Googling you, but because I was looking to resize Flash Videos via CSS (i think JS is more likely the solution).

    and voila, i landed on a page of a dude i know. cool.

    Any idea how we could amend this to retain the ratio after adjusting the width?
