Much more than it says on the box. Fulfils many great functions.

Perfect !

I had some problem with others plugins to make Firefox diplays the video. It was just a black screen but worked with chrome and Safari.

With this plugin, everything work fine in all browsers and the responsiveness is good.

Maybe add an option to choose a custom size for the video. I modified the css for it.

Displays smaller version than all other Youtube plugins
By , for WP 3.8.1

It's a good plugin overall... but, the display is small compared to other plugins.

Tried all standard and HD ratios ... all of the standard displayed at the same size... all of the hd at the same size, which was about 20% smaller than other plugins.

Cut my page load time in half!
By , for WP 3.8.1

I usually don't make the time to write reviews... but I had to here.

Probably one of the best and most useful plugins I could ask for! I have a bunch of pages with several youtube video's on each. My load times averaged about 8-9 seconds. After installing this plugin, I checked the load time again and it knocked it down to around 4 seconds, sometimes less!

I also tried a couple other lazy load plugins for videos, nothing worked except this one.. and this one works perfectly! Nice and clean, easy setup with the shortcodes.

6/5 stars!

Fast Loading, SEO and half the Page Size
By , for WP 3.8.1

This is definetly the best I have tried and tested in comparison to others over the last few weeks. Videos load much faster, display in high quality and of course has good SEO advantages. To think I almost never tried this due to only seeing a few reviews! Fantastic plugin!

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.
