If you've copied over a whole embed code generated by YouTube, then it's
going to have those dimensions. If you want to use that width from your
settings, try putting just the video URL in plain text on its own line to
take advantage of oEmbed (you'll have to turn on attempting to embed video
URLs if it's not already).
