    everytime I post a youtube link like this


    it turns into this


    I don't want it to, because another plugin of mine needs to use that url. So what can I do to change that

    I mean. You saw this post. Are you going to respond at all? you appear to have answered to others, skipping this question.

    I don't earn any money through this project, its only my spare time. So sorry for not giving support to all of the questions, feels like the number of them grows exponentially.

    I am not sure why you would prefer the ?feature=player_embedded&v=## style to the short url. The source you need to look at if you want to change this behavior is in featured-video-plus/php/backend.php:386. If you do not need the time linking feature replace this line by 'url' => $url, - this should do the trick. Be aware that future updates will undo your modifications and that I do not ensure you that the plugin still behaves the same (while I think it's not a critical modification).

    I know but when you make something it's like.. a responsibility to help others... if you leave it out there like that and problems occur it's very scary not to have support... Thank you it works.

    This is the last thing I need from this plugin.

    I just would like one last thing. The iframe turns into this long thing in the featured video, is it impossible to just have it as a normal yotube link in the front end?
    This is what I see in the source code,
    ----<iframe width="765" height="555" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/-GsemzJaBgU?theme=dark&color=red&showinfo=0&modestbranding=0&enablejsapi=0&origin=http://www.kashigasa.com&rel=0&fs=1&start=0&autoplay=0" type="text/html" frameborder="0" id="fvpyt2871"></iframe>---

    This is what I want instead


    Is there a way to use the Youtube link instead of the embed code?

    Well, it's not like I am not supporting this project anymore. I am definitely planning to release 1.9 in the future - which will fix bugs which I found out about through the support forums. But it is something different to read all those posts here in a feed reader and keep track of bugs or to actually respond to every single one. Most of the questions are problems about integrating the plugin into a specific theme, which I demonstrated in a couple of threads, but cannot do for everyone. Most huge plugins have paid versions which also include support. You might be interested in reading this.

    Your question here can be solved by reading the plugin's description. Try something like <?php echo get_the_post_video_url( $post_id ); ?> in your theme's source files - again, if your theme is updated by the developer this will be overwritten.

    Feel free to ask further questions :)
