Excellent extension


Posted on 28 September 2012

I absolutely love this extension. It runs seamlessly with other YouTube plugin extensions and is very customizable.



The only problem I have had is this, it doesn't seem to be compatible with iOS 6 for the iPhone. It works perfectly on iOS 5 but as of last week, most of everyone with an iPhone has upgraded. I will be looking forward to the next update.

Easy to install and works very nicely. There is however a suggestion:



Youtube allows a video to start anywhere by using something like "t=12m33s" at the end of the URL. This extension does not read this. Including this would be great.



In an article, some work is required with CCS or formatting to get a video to "float" right or left. A plugin parameter would be very usefull.



If you are prepared for a bit of formatting, then this entension is incredibly simple to use. Insert the Youtube URL without tags - and the video gets displayed.



With just a small effort this extention could rate 5 stars !

YouTube Video in Fancybox

By Molnár Gergely
Social Media
This plugin can add youtube videos into your articles and get to play them in fancybox (lightbox). You have to simply copy the youtube link into the article without any tags. It uses jquery v1.7.1 and fancybox v1.3.4. You can use inline parameters too. Separate them with | and don't use any space character. Example recognized syntax if videocode is yv0zA9kN6L8 : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yv0...
