YouTube embed plugin. Customize a YouTube embed with your own annotations, links, and controls. YouTube fans will see YouTube in a unique way!
IMPORTANT NOTE: Unfortunately, Google has deprecated an important API that allowed us to provide several of the advanced features of this plugin like 3rd-party annotations, chapters, and clickable links. We strongly recommend that you install our other popular YouTube WordPress plugin for embedding mobile-friendly HTML5 videos, galleries, and playlists. By just checking a box in its settings, you will even automatically migrate your past embeds to the HTML5 player (Your video start times and end times will be ported, but your 3rd-party annotations, chapters, and clickable links cannot be migrated however.)
YouTube Advanced Embed is a plugin that enhances the YouTube videos you embed in your WordPress site. It's a feature-rich and smart upgrade to the standard YouTube embed. By just pasting a YouTube link, you'll not only get the features of YouTube's standard embed, but also extra playback options, relevant user-generated content, video reactions beyond YouTube.com comments (e.g., Google+, Reddit, and Twitter). With our free wizard, you can also customize your YouTube embeds with third-party annotations, chapters, and more. Go PRO and add clickable links, analytics, alerts, and more.
More specifically, YouTube Advanced Embed can provide you and your visitors with the following features for each YouTube embed:
...All without having to alter the original video's content on YouTube. The plugin even works if you use the nifty oEmbed method of just pasting a YouTube video link on its own line. Your past YouTube embeds can be automatically transformed if you wish.
After installing, you have the ability to add on PRO options like one-click YouTube SEO tags and a user-friendly YouTube analytics dashboard. The dashboard answers important questions like:
It will even alert you if Google takes down a YouTube video you embedded on your site.
Note: If you don't see the extra features on your YouTube embeds, you might have another WordPress-YouTube embed plugin that needs to be deactivated first.
