I just to install this plugin on all sites to quickly embed YouTube videos. However WordPress can since quite some time embed videos very easily. More info:

Does not look great

Sadly this does not add anything worth having - very disapointing

WP 3.5.1 and Smart Youtube Pro 4.0 not working together
By , for WP 3.5.1

In the last weeks, Smart Youtube stopped showing my playlist in a correct way. I tried many things to get it to work, but without luck.

It will work correctly with one video, but not with a playlist.

The code I am using is: httpvp://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL79B0E8F6F42DAD31 ...

It will show the black box and options 'Playlist' and 'Play all', but once you hit that, it will give an error: Video is non existing?

HIGHLY UNrecommended!
By , for WP 3.6

I would DEFINITELY NOT recommend this plugin for the following reasons.

1) The following is a quote from the developer's website ( http://www.prelovac.com/vladimir/wordpress-plugins/smart-youtube ):

Guys I am really sorry but I am not able to provide support for this plugin. That's the "price" of it being free. Most of the things you think don't work, really work, please check the documentation before you despair :)

2) Does not work on iPhone. I have had several complaints from clients and colleagues who are iPhone users & have tried to view my videos on websites. I have tried just about every setting I could think of in the plugin, but still cannot get it to work on iPhones.

Dead easy to use1

Love this one - when setup just copy paste the Youtube URL in and it appears on the site.

I've checked the 'read http as httpv' links checkbox which makes it easier for a non-tech user.

Thanks guys!

Works great

I first tried using the "v" after https for youtube and it did not function. I changed the link from https:// to httpv:// and it worked like a charm. Big thanks!

Note that I have not tested with other sites, so I can't give a full report, but youtube is what I primarily use!

Very useful

I tried many different solutions to embed videos inside posts and this plugin it's the best one I found.

Good, but not responsive

I would recommend the responsive video embeds plugin.
