Support » Plugin: Simple YouTube Embed » Dont bother. Does nothing more than default wp embed

  • patbell101


    If you try the parameters such as &autoplay=1 or &rel=1 wp converts & to & and stops it working.

    @patbell101, That is not true. Stop confusing users.

    Well, I was using html of an embedded iframe and wordpress kept tokenising the ampersand preventing the setting of youtube parameters. Your plugin did the same thing for me. Perhaps there’s a setting somewhere but the only info I could find was that wordpress does this for security purposes.

    I eventually used the gutenberg video block which works fine but does not allow the setting of rel=0. In the very end I just used a smart slider 3 single video slide

    @patbell101, The plugin doesn’t tell you to copy and paste any HTML code. You need to create a YouTube block and insert the URL as shown on the Details page.

    I didnt paste html, I was trying to solve a problem that html on its own caused

    Granted my initial problem of tokenising was not the case but using a youtube block and the video link that youtube gives me in its video editing dialogue (and adding the parameter) will not embed. But will. However it will do so whether I use your plugin or not. So I can see no benefit.

    Readers – try this yourself if you like. Perhaps the native youtube block has improved to include whatever this plugin was supposed to do?

    @patbell101, doesn’t automatically disable related videos (tested without the plugin on WordPress 5.3).

    OK, it didn’t show them for me on an actual page. (with your plugin disabled)
    but with your plugin activated it shows exactly the same (plugin enabled)

    Thank you for your time but I have wasted enough of mine on this. This plugin des nothing for me. Maybe the gutenberg youtube block now works or perhaps its something to do with my setup but I have tried disabling plugins, multisite, single site and different servers. At least it got me able to use the default gutenberg youtube block so – result there.
