Simple YouTube Embed Usage

Create a new post/page and enter your YouTube video URL to embed it. Make sure the URL is on its own line and not hyperlinked (clickable when viewing the post). In order to avoid formatting errors, It's better to place the URL into the content area in text mode. For example:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vpg9yizPP_g

Related videos

In order to disable related videos from showing you can add "rel=0" to a YouTube URL.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vpg9yizPP_g&rel=0

Controls

If you do not want to show player controls you can add "controls=0" to a YouTube URL.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vpg9yizPP_g&controls=0
