  2. The YouTube version3 player

    The player used on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VIDEO_ID is YouTube's version3 player. If you want to use it directly (without the watch?v= part) you can do, for instance: http://www.youtube.com/v/EUSsXdhxFIM?version=3. (You may have to press CTRL if you want this to work in IE).

    Code:
