Support » Plugin: WP YouTube Lyte » End Time and Stop Annotations?

  • Resolved jtracy


    I absolutely love your plugin. Great job!

    My question is this… now days many videos are really annoying with annotations that fill the screen and five minute “endings” begging people to subscribe. I’d like to do away with both.

    Is there a way to establish a “stop” time in a video (I saw your answer on doing a start time, but have seen nothing on and end time). And can I enter a command in the url line to stop annotations from showing (this would make a nice “default” option in your plugin settings – I know other plugins have it.

    Thanks for your time and for your great work!

    Weird, by default Lyte-embedded YouTube’s should be annotation-free (they’re loaded with iv_load_policy=3). Did a quick test with a video with tons of annotations and indeed I see none (I do see captions, but that’s a different beast). Do you have a URL where I could test this?

    Specifying an end-time is on my list of things to look in to, but it is not available now. Although YouTube supports specifying end-time, support is limited as it only works in one specific player (i.e. Flash ActionScript 3 player). If you need it now, you could use the YouTube JSapi plus one of the approaches described in this stackoverflow-thread to stop the vids at your convenience.
