How to disable auto-resizing of videos on responsive themes

In our responsive themes we automatically resize videos to fit the full width of the area they're embedded into. This can be disabled on a per-video basis by wrapping a special piece of code around the embed code that YouTube provides. The code is shown below in bold:

<div class="ignorevid">
<iframe width="560" height="315"  src="//www.youtube.com/embed/_xMz2SnSWS4" frameborder="0"  allowfullscreen></iframe>
</div>

To recap, we place the code <div class="ignorevid"> BEFORE the embed code provided by youtube, then we add a </div> AFTER it.
