    How can such a simple plug-in screw up what it's supposed to do:

    I installed the plugin and added the short code:

    [youtube_sc url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gca-bD4gOec]

    and what I see is You Tube explaining how to run their browser window.

    What a joke..............

    Mmmm...I hardly doubt that is the plugin's fault. Hundreds of websites are using it flawlessly.

    I've pasted the shortcode you complain about in a post of the plugin's documentation website and everything works as expected, take a look:

    If you cannot see your video in that website properly, I'm sure you have a big issue caused by your browser or a browser plugin or another application in your system.

    You should also disable any other wordpress plugins you may have installed to test if one of those is causing your issue.

    What I can guarantee you is the plugin works as expected and it's not a joke.

    Think before you rate a plugin with one star.
