Setup: Install the module, go to Extensions->Module Manager, open it, enable it and enter the following minimum data:
- YouTube Video ID: This is for example here, the bold part of http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KKTxSN7njhE
- Enter the ID of the top container of your Joomla template (varies based on the template). Just view the source of your web site, and see the first div id (i.e. ) ja-wrapper
We have included in the package one plugin that will load jQuery library if it is not loaded already by another plugin or component.

The affect on a transparent template with this module really does give the website a really different feeling.
Really happy with the end result.
Ads are displayed by YouTube. If you are the owner of the video, you can disable these. We never advertised the extension to be able to hide ads. This is a negative review for a feature that the user requires as a custom work AND WAS NEVER ADVERTISED. We also provided the solution to not display the ads within about one hour. However it was too late. The user didn't want it to work, he wanted it for free.
The user started a PayPal claim in less than one hour after purchase and without giving us any chance to make corrections or to provide fix. He also threatens us to "leave bad review in JED", if we don't refund him immediately. This was a pure example of friendly fraud. I would suggest anyone having to deal with that user to be very careful, as he is one of those people trying to abuse the system and use other's work for free.
With this module, i find the perfect solution to enhance my video in the frontpage of my website. After some parameter adjustement, the SW Team was so close and quickly responsive to my forum questions : very serious and professional. I recommand this small acquisition to everyone who want to give a fresh video experience to their webfollower.
