You do not need a plug-in to embed a youtube video into one of your posts. By simply placing the youtube video code into your post you will obtain the video on your post. This code is available by simply acquiring the "share" produced code.

There is a program titled "Traffic Player" that can be used. The program has several facets available. The program can place a "picture frame" skin. The program will also allow you to remove several segments of the
normal youtube video. It is possible to remove the controls, eliminate youtube's suggested videos etcetera. You can also set it so that your video post will begin playing as soon as the post is loaded (autoplay).

Traffic Player has a "free version" as well as a professional version. The pro version has greater options available allowing it to be used with Youtube or other video formats. The free version of the program works well but it restricted to single website embedding YOUTUBE videos. The pro version can be used on multiple website domains that are owned by you. There is a 3rd version available that will allow you to place the "TP Plug-in" on clients account websites.

Good luck!

After placing the video or videos on your website you should also ADD a video xml sitemap. This will enhance your website for SEO.

I use the JW video player plugin that has a lot of display options. To get the video into the post just copy the url from youtube, edit it to gt the link information and paste into a shortcode where I want it to appear on my post.

For example this link is to a youtube video of the Eagle playing Hotel California:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v2cpUOdPDbw&feature=related. All you need for the shortcode is this bit: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v2cpUOdPDbw.

The shortcode looks like this:

[jwplayer file='http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v2cpUOdPDbw']

You may have to mess about with the settings in the video play to get the width and horizontal placement right but after that it's a piece of cake. It will alos work with other video streams but you'll have to experiment with the links in the the shortcode.
