Viper's Video Quicktags
Integrating with the YouTube API (2 posts)

    Can there be an option to enable the YouTube API by passing in the parameter ?enablejsapi=1 in SWFObject? (YouTube JS Player api reference) A useful addition would also be also passing something like &playerapiid=postid

    What do you think about this?

    Here's a supplementary explanation of what I'm trying to do: All my posts contain YouTube videos. I'd like the individual post pages to autoplay videos but I want the default to not autoplay (so that my home page doesn't autoplay 20 or so videos at once.) Secondly, using a plugin like Random Redirect, I want to open example.com/~random after the YouTube video finishes playing, for continuous playback. And I think these things could be accomplished using the API.

    Anyway, thanks again for the plugin. I find it inspiring as someone who's just learning as he goes.

    For random, yes, the JS API could probably do that. I'll include it in my next major release.

    For autoplay, try adding this to your theme's functions.php:

    add_filter( 'vvq_shortcodeatts', 'marctytus1_vvq_tweaker', 10, 3 );
    function marctytus1_vvq_tweaker( $atts, $type, $origatts ) {
    	if ( is_singular() )
    		$atts['autoplay'] = true;
    	return $atts;

    That'll enable autoplay when in single post view.
