Fantastic, light weight plugin
By , for WP 3.8

You did a great job coding this and I appreciate your efforts. Its an especially nice touch that your script only loads on pages where its required. No extra requests on pages with no youtube videos. Well played!

Very Lyte Indeed
By , for WP 3.7.1

Works as advertized, no drama, glitches or failures.

And it is INDEED very light! Testing with a single 360p Youtube video, the Lyte plugin saved 360Kb on my homepage. That's about .6 sec on my well-optimized site - impressive.

Great plugin + great support
By , for WP 3.7.1

Works as advertised!

I had a problem with youtube playlists, not due to the plugin, but due to youtube. Frank really helped very swiftly to get to the root cause of my problem. Support is as least equally important as functionality. Hats off to both!

Worked directly!

Love this plug-in ... without hassle it work directly.

After struggling to get SmartYoutube (Pro) to work again with my newest WP version, I was tired and gave this one a try. Way to go!!

Great plugin, just one question:

Great Plugin!

Works perfectly as described. Posts w/ videos load much faster. Plugin even adds microformatting that Google picks up.

Just what I needed
By , for WP 3.5.2

I am building a responsive mobile-driven, video-centric site in WordPress, and never really gave the Youtube videos (themselves) much thought. This plugin works very well at making them responsive. I only wish I could customize the default video size to my own dimensions (rather than the 8 or so options given).

The bonus to this plugin - that I wasn't expecting - was the speed. Often, WP plugins can slow down a pages load times. So thanks to the devs for making this one quick plugin that strips out unneeded data and keeping load times short.
