    How do you install a video player, place it ona page, and then view that video via You tube ?

    There are two ways.

    1. Visit the video page on Youtube and grab the embed code to use in the Text(HTML) editor of a page or post.
    2. Use the WordPress embed option: http://codex.wordpress.org/Embeds#In_A_Nutshell

    Why do you need a video player? It would probably be easier to use the WordPress embed functionality if you're just showing YouTube videos.

    You do not need a plugin. You can embed a (youtube) video on any post or page desired.

    The second instructions when followed (correctly) also work.

    Put the code wherever you want the video to show up on your site - just copy the URL from YouTube.

    wherever you want the video to show up on your site - just copy the URL from YouTube.

    In the page or post - copy the URL from YouTube.

    Don't use a plugin.

    YouTube link. Just paste the URL of the video on a line of its own in any post or page, and it will display as an embedded video when you publish.

    EDIT: Sorry WPYogi - we kept posting at the same time.
