  1. News from YouTube

    I wanted to post the news some time ago, but I was afraid I was wrong. So I waited.
    It seems, however, to be the truth and nothing but the truth (for the time being): YouTube have removed their ads from all videos except the ones that have http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ID. (And even there, the ads are gone when we use IE or Firefox).
    So now we can embed YouTube videos - in an iframe or flash object - without resorting to all kinds of malicious means to remove the ads (which does ...

  2. A plugin for the JW Player

    A plugin that allows us to (i) create a customized playlist for chromeless YouTube-videos (using the JW player), (ii) place info about each video at the top of it and (iii) chop the video's - which makes it possible to create new YouTube-video's out of existing ones.

    Demo and explanations here.

  3. Prevent users to open a video on the video-providing site (in a new window)

    Inserting these two lines to your include code for video's:

    <param name="allowScriptAccess" value="never">
    <param name="allowNetworking" value="internal">

    prevents flash apps from running scripts or having outbound links.

    This is a very handy method for preventing users to open the video on the video-providing site (in a new window) when they accidentally click on the video screen.

  4. HTML 4.01 Strict Video Include & Chopping Parts from YouTube video's

    HTML 4.01 Strict Video Include:
    Code:
    <!--[if IE]>
    <object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" style="position:absolute;left:20%; top:20%; height:80%;width:80%">
    <![endif]-->
    <!--[if !IE]><!-->
    <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" style="position:absolute;left:20%; top:20%; height:80%;width:80%" data="http://swf.tubechop.com/tubechop.swf?vurl=rw1j0NsIIeE&amp;start=164&amp;end=199&amp;cid=28051"

  5. YouTube Chromeless Player

    It's not directly obvious from this how we can:
    - start a movie on page load (question asked by some people on different forums);
    - specify the dimensions and position of the movies in percentages;
    - make good use of the ytplayer functions.

    Autoplay: something like
    Code:
    function so_start()
    {
    loadNewVideo('lKq9_kk3Zbc', 20);
    }
    //IE needs some time
    window.onload=setTimeout('so_start()',2000)
    Size of movie in percentages ...
