    I have used the plugin, i did made modification to it to be able to extract the information i needed. The format of xml don't have any errors, but my videos don't get indexed on google.

    I have post a question into google forum, and i have read this comment:

    At this point, Google is still working on support for YouTube embeds and video sitemaps to support them (directly from the mouth of the PM at Google Videos).... For - obvious reasons, they need to work through a method of authentication such that spammers dont embed and rank for youtube videos across the web.

    My video-sitemap doesn't get indexed on google...

    For a few days, in google Webmaster tools, it was saying than 2000 url was in web index, but when i went on video.google.com and put site:top3dtv.com nothing was returning from the search.

    It look like, google don't index embed youtube.

    Did somebody was able to make it work for embed youtube (mean your video are in google video result), if yes, can you send me the link of your video sitemap?

    Will compare with mine, in case i did something wrong.

    See my sitemap:

    This has been a while but looks as if your xml file is not parsing correctly now.

    It doesnt matter if it's parsing correctly because he is absolutely correct - Google does not index domains outside of youtube for video results that have youtube embeds :( They've flat out told me this and our readers in the webinar located at that forum thread and here - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kks0wPkX12I

    The #URLs indexed in webmaster tools is not tied to video results, it just means that those URLs is indexed in web search (they're working on fixing that as well)... As for now - if you want your site to show for video results, you'll need to put up video from somewhere other than YouTube embeds....
