    Using the plugin from my desktop on my wordpress blog is ok either in IE, Chrome and Firefox.
    I use the start and end time line to display only extracts from youtube videos.
    It works well and easy to use.
    But I also set a plugin to go mobile called "wp mobile detector" and when I watch the video from my iphone the video starts from the very begining regardless of start time and stop time.
    I hope it is a minor bug that can be fixed quickly..

    It turns out that it's not an issue with the EmbedPlus plugin. YouTube does not allow that feature on iOS (HTML5) in general. We researched this issue a while ago. People like you have wanted this support form YouTube for years, but it turns out it's not easy to engineer. In fact, here's a discussion thread describing where things are right now with the possibility of YouTube engineers implementing this feature:


    Thanks for using EmbedPlus!
