Embed YouTube video in WordPress beautifully. Embed YouTube video with a URL or shortcode and customize the player using this YouTube embed plugin.
Simple YouTube Embed plugin is the easiest way to embed YouTube videos in WordPress. This plugin extends the default YouTube embed with advanced player parameters. When the page is rendered, a high resolution thumbnail image is displayed instead of the YouTube video player.
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:
Related YouTube Videos
In order to disable related videos from showing you can add "rel=0" to your YouTube URL.
YouTube Video Controls
If you do not want to show player controls you can add "controls=0" to your YouTube URL.
YouTube Video Info
If you do not want to show information like the video title and uploader you can add "showinfo=0" to your YouTube URL.
YouTube Video Fullscreen
If you do not want to allow fullscreen option in the player you can add "fs=0" to your YouTube URL.
