Advanced YouTube Embed Plugin
Plugin DetailsType: Video / Audio
Strengths:Good Features, It's Free!, Editors' Choice
Advanced YouTube Embed is a free plugin for WordPress that enhances the videos you embed in your website. By just pasting a YouTube link, you’ll not only get the features of YouTube’s standard embed, but also extra playback options, relevant user-generated content, and video reactions beyond YouTube.com comments.
- Video Reactions – Discussions around a YouTube video you embed might be happening all over the web, not just YouTube.com. This feature allows your visitors to read them right from your blog. We have a growing list of communities that includes Digg, Google+, Reddit, and Twitter. Recent YouTube.com comments can also be displayed by the plugin.
- Timed Annotations – Now you can add annotations to a YouTube embed even if you don’t own the YouTube channel. Use it to display captions, links, calls-to-action, etc at a specific time during playback.
- Chaptering (custom and smart social chaptering)
- Cropping – Set start and stop times to share just a funny or interesting part of a YouTube video.
- Instant Replay
- Looping / Auto Replay – Repeat a scene you like or the whole video over and over.
- Other DVD-like controls
- Auto HD
Note: If you don’t see the extra features on your YouTube embeds, you might have another WordPress-YouTube embed plugin that needs to be deactivated first.
