    I've checked YouTube in plugin options, but the plugin still doesn't work with YouTube videos, why? With images it works well.

    FancyBox only works with LINKS, not with embedded media (image, flash movie or any other media). So embedding a Youtube movie will not make it come up in FancyBox. Just like embedding an image will not make it come up in FancyBox. You have to LINK to it.

    In this case, link to a Youtube movie page (using the full URL or the short youtu.be URL) and clicking that link will open the movie inside Fancybox. You are free in how you shape that link. It can be a pain text link or one with a still image of the movie in it. That does not matter. As long as it is a link.

    With embedded images FancyBox works, test it on the blog.

    It's the thumbnail image (small size) that is embedded in the content, but the large image that is linked to is the one that opens in FancyBox. Same goes for other media. You need to link to it.
