Youtube Privacy

Description

This is a lightweight plugin to embed youtube in a way that respects your readers privacy.

It uses the standard wordpress syntax to embed youtube videos from https://www.youtube-nocookie.com instead of http://www.youtube.com so the video is encrypted with https and no cookies are send to track the user.

Features

  • No special syntax. Just use automatic wordpress embedding introduced in WordPress 2.9. Put the video URL on a new line or (if you want to specify the size) between [embed] shorcode. More info in the codex.

  • Uses HTTPS and youtube-nocookie.com for privacy.

  • Mobile devices compatibility (HTML5 tag used if the device is compatible)

Installation

  1. Decompress the zip in your plugins directory.
  2. Activate the plugin.
  3. Enjoy.
