[iframe tgn.tv 604 500]
- Insert any website into yours!
Just paste the raw YouTube URL on its own line to see the video! (Remove the first "http://" so "http://www.yout..." is on its own line - had to do this otherwise wordpress.org shows the video!)
Use the shortcode for setting width, height and autoplay: [youtube WDLgEyJ3SlE 604 364 autoplay=1 ]
Supports all YouTube options at http://code.google.com/apis/youtube/player_parameters.html

What is YouTube?
YouTube lets you broadcast yourself.
It is the world’s best and free video hosting service. Upload your videos and share them with your friends or the world!
What is VideoReadr?
VideoReadr enhances YouTube videos with bookmarkes, transcripts and a full scripting language
- Fixed YouTube embed code to be valid XHTML using http://blog.martincrockett.com/general/valid-youtube-and-vimeo-code/ (thanks Petr Cibulka!)
- Plain YouTube URLs now must be on their own line (so you can describe the URL without it changing into the video!)
- Added support for plain YouTube URLs like http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WDLgEyJ3SlE and the same wrapped in <a href=”> (no need for shortcode!)
- YouTube videos now don’t show other people’s videos at the end. To show other videos, add “rel=1” to the shortcode. For example:
- Added support for more video sites: Vimeo, Metacafe and Dailymotion! (See the Description for examples showing how to use them)
- Raised max spreadsheet rows from 100 to 10,000!
- Added support to show a different sheet in Google Spreadsheets (just add to the end “sheet=2” to show second sheet)
- PDFs now display in IE (thanks Michael Klusek for pointing out the fix in http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/Google+Docs/thread?tid=22d92671afd5b9b7)
- Updated the YouTube player to the latest version 3 (now, embedded videos play exactly like on youtube.com, including videoreadrs!)
- Added jQuery check that dynamically loads jQuery if it is not detected by the end of <head>
- Added the [document] shortcode for Google documents and updated the Description with an example
- Updated VideoReadr to comply with HTML5 requirements, prefixing all custom attribute names with “data-“
- Added support for [iframe] shortcode to display any webpage in your post
- YouTube videos can now be hidden by pull-down menus and other HTML (added wmode=opaque to the object and embed elements)
- Updated VideoReadr to support decoupling YouTube from VideoReadr, but must now add YouTube ID to shortcode, like [videoreadr Uz7fOLDr2JM nmrdsxtb]
- Added all public YouTube API parameters at http://code.google.com/apis/youtube/player_parameters.html
- Discovered a bug where the auto-linkify feature broke the WordPress image feature – disabled auto-linkify to fix this
- Added YouTube autoplay option! Just add “autoplay=1” to the shortcode, like
- Added PowerPoint example to Description
- Changed default YouTube video to “First look at LOTRO (Lord of the Rings Online) free-to-play” – to see it, type in any WordPress post

- Added more shortcode intelligence to support common paste issues like [show http://tgnbooks.com/the-great-gatsby.pdf]

- Automatically linkify URL and email addresses in plain text (can be clicked)
- Changed YouTube embed to use the new YouTube iframe code (uses HTML5 player if your browser supports it) – http://apiblog.youtube.com/2010/07/new-way-to-embed-youtube-videos.html
