    Hi farbenfeuer,

    Thank you for your questions.

    What do you think about a popup confirm accept privacy when click to play first video on your website?

    If you have more ideas, please send us message to https://www.yotuwp.com/contact

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Best regards,


    Hey there,

    thanks for your quick reply and suggestion!

    i think that would indeed be a step in the right direction! I’m just picking up on things from what i hear from my clients and their lawyers, as to what needs to be done. It’s said its ok to embedd youtube videos if on the video itself you go -> share -> embedd and there check the box of “Enable privacy-enhanced mode.”

    So im thinking the optimal way would be if you let your plugin pull all the videos with this mode enabled by default, if that is possible. If not i guess a way to be able to implement a “comply first to watch” would be viable/good enough. Of course i’d need to be able to specify the text and all myself, so i can translate it in german.

    It basically has to inform the user, that if he clicks the video to watch it, personal data like his IP will be sent to the youtube server or something like that. Maybe even a way to make his decision globally, so he doesn’t have to click that every time?

    Thanks for your time

    hey guys,

    do you have any news regarding the gdpr thing?


    By the way – for the moment i guess we would be fine with a simple popup that makes the videos unusable unless you click to accept the data compliance text or something like that.

    Meaning some form of usage-wall with Text i can define myself (including the ability to link to the privacy policy site, or at least use html links within the textfield) and buttons.
