  • Resolved riversatile



    Anybody knows how or if Viper’s Video Quicktags extension can support the New Youtube Player appearance ?
    I talking about the gray player you can see on Youtube since some weeks.

    Does the developper will upgrade Viper’s Video Quicktags to support embeded of the new player appearance ?

    OK… Nobody has the answer because Youtube hs not implemented the use of the new Youtue player as an embed objet.

    Thanks guys




    Recently, youtube embed code is now supporting new appearance, as you can see on the most blogs.

    Have you got any information about implementation of the new youtube player in Viper’s Video Quicktags ?

    Unfortunately I haven’t had a lot of time to work on the plugin lately so it’s pretty much in maintenance-only mode (fix bugs but no new features).

    However WordPress has built-in YouTube embedding support which uses the latest version of the embed type (currently a smart <iframe>). You can find details about that here:



    Thanks for your quick answer.

    I made some search by comparing the Viper’s quick tags embed and the oEMBED (described here)

    It seems we have just to add the string
    just after the Youtube video ID ! I made a test with Google Chrome developer tool, it’s working.

    But can you put me on the good way ?

    The new Youtube player :

    <object width="590" height="357"><param name="movie" value=""><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"><embed src="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="590" height="357" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></object>

    The old Youtube player (Viper’s Video Quick Tags) :

    <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="" width="590" height="360" id="vvq-6017-youtube-1" style="visibility: visible; "><param name="wmode" value="opaque"><param name="allowfullscreen" value="true"><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></object>
    <script type="text/javascript">	swfobject.embedSWF("", "vvq-6017-youtube-1", "590", "360", "10", vvqexpressinstall, vvqflashvars, vvqparams, vvqattributes);</script>



    I don’t find the function that return the “vipe’s video quick tags” embed code in the HTML page.

    Hi Riversatile, please see the following ‘how-to’, in case you’re still trying to embed the v3 player:

    SOLVED : Here is the solution, copied from

    1 – OPEN the following file : vipers-video-quicktags.php

    2 – FIND:

    'url' => '' . $embedpath . $color1 . $color2 . $border . '&rel=' . $rel . '&fs=' . $fs . '&showsearch=' . $showsearch . '&showinfo=' . $showinfo . $autoplay . $loop . $hd,


    'url' => '' . $embedpath . $color1 . $color2 . $border . '&rel=' . $rel . '&fs=' . $fs . '&showsearch=' . $showsearch . '&showinfo=' . $showinfo . $autoplay . $loop . $hd . '&version=3&modestbranding=1&autohide=1',

    4 – SAVE & UPLOAD the file to your server

    5 – If you’re using a cache plugin : delete cached files
