• Been struggling with the no-cookie YouTube videos for my blogs with 2000+ posts since last summer bc of GDPR and other privacy concerns.
    This plugin solves everything in 1 quick install: replaces videos by an image (better loading times), adds no-cookie YT to oEmbeds.

    My problem’s solved! THX.

    A quick note with my 2cts: have been trying to find such a plugin for a few months, and this one never came out in results. I was referred to it from a discussion on WP tracker.

    May be you should add some useful keywords (SEO?) in the description of your plugin, such as “no-cookie YT oEmbed” “GDPR and other laws” “Privacy”… it’s not just optimization (which is great), it goes much further…

    Hi there,

    Thank you so much for the positive review – I am really pleased that you are finding the plugin useful.

    With regards to the additional SEO words, I am always cautious about mentioning that fact the plugin could help with GDPR as it was not built for that purpose and probably doesn’t do a good enough job.

    It still has to contact the Youtube servers in order to grab the thumbnail and therefore it is not going to be a complete cookie free solution. Therefore I am wary about suggesting it is so.

    That said, it does use the Youtube no cookie domain for the embed and therefore I could certainly think about adding that in the description.

    Thanks again for using the plugin and leaving such as a positive review.

    Kind regards,
