Yeah, standard definition for standard definition videos and widescreen/HD for widescreen/HD videos.

Maybe they should make an option when you upload a video to choose a 4:3 or 16:9 aspect ratio for that particular video.

Same thing I was wondering, but then then the widescreen feature might not be as widely advertised if the viewers never saw the player aspect ratio change. It would be awhile still before the widescreen videos get uploaded and abundant if not for the aspect ratio change of the 4:3 videos.

If you embeded a video, and the size of the SWF changed, then it could break your design..
