blackhat tricks
By , for WP 3.5.1

This plug-in generates unwanted content when you use it, such as generating links to download other products from the author. You can remove the unwanted links by declaring CSS override for the DOM elements in that he adds:

.youtube-player > span,
.vye_links {
display: none !important;
}
What a crappy thing to do- Check your website after update
By , for WP 3.5.1

At least this guy has taught me to not trust plugin developers. Make sure you guys check your website after updating plugins.

I would recommend you delete this or don't use it because of the underhanded tricks the guy tried to do to get links to his webpage.

Blackhat indeed.

Added PageRank Sucking Links to my site linking to their site
By , for WP 3.5.1

I had used the plugin "YouTube Embed" for quite a while with no problems. When I looked recently - after doing updates - they had modified the plugin to give themselves my pagerank via outbound links. There were 3 outbound links around every instance of video that I had used their plugin for. What a deviant thing to do. I will NEVER use this plugin again and I suggest you don't either. Here are the links: Download YouTube Video | YouTube to MP3 | Advanced tools from Jaksta.com
