Can not play when insert inside UAS
By , for WP 4.2.2

I really like this plugin and it's easy to use.
Previously, when I use inside a User Access Shortcode (UAS) plugin, it works e.g.

Content for guest.

Content for member.
[lyte id="ZB3SPInPzzk" /]

But today it does not play, I don't know why?

Great plugin

Anything that helps my site speed is great. Just what I needed :)

By , for WP 3.7.1

Fast, responsive and very easy to use.

Ability to override thumbnail used for a video is also very useful, works great with locally stored featured images retrieved on post publish with Video Thumbnails plugin.

Thank you :)

Future proof YouTube player

This one is going to work when others might fail after the end of April 2015 when a Google V3 api is necessary.

Excellent support!

How cool is that?

I bet even my cat walking across my keyboard could embed a YouTube video with this plugin...

Many sincere thanks!

This plugin fixed my HTML5 validation errors.
By , for WP 4.1.1

The default WordPress YouTube embed methods were giving W3C HTML5 validation errors, after using this plugin for YouTube embeds instead, the errors went away. Thanks!

Excellent speed and simplicity
By , for WP 4.1

Works exactly as expected with a realistic look just like the original. Speed is confirmed better with less scripts loaded. Im pleased and will use again.
I installed and had this working in seconds. Very easy.

I have some code below the viewer
By ,


I have this piece of code below the viewer:
width= »1/1″ css= ».vc_custom_1417904652879{background-color: #ffffff !important;} »]

I use Visual Composer, maybe the "vc_" is associate with it, but maybe a conflict...

If I use "Add a media" with the youtube standard url, no problem, but my aim is to use your lite plugin.


excellent work, awesome support

Normal URL rocks!
By , for WP 4.0.1

Just came in to give 5 star for the normal url without the "v".
