The YouTube plugin helps you embedding a video to your pages. All you need is just find the video you need using the keyword search or by its URL and press the "OK" button.

The plugin fully supports the new YouTube API 3. It has a video preview feature and the settings for the inserted video (e. g. video size, including custom sizes).

Reviews

It is definitely the best plugin I have for my Tiny! A lot of settings, aspect ratio options for embedding video. Search feature by the phrase, or by URL.

Thanks a lot!
