Force YouTube videos (in Theatre mode) to use a larger 1280x720 theatre mode player on screens with less vertical space, such as 900px high laptops. Designed for OS X Safari, don't know if it works in other browsers.

More info
Progress bar does not properly utilize the full width of the wider player. Seems to be driven by JavaScript and CSS alone cannot compensate. Annotations are not relocated properly either.

Update: now doesn't break the fullscreen player!

I update this when it breaks due to changes on YouTube's side. It probably only works with the HTML5 video player, and I only use and test it in Safari for Mac.
