YouTube Embed with New Player Design

In my previous post, I mentioned about YouTube’s new player design. Right now, it only works on — not for videos embed externally. But, with a small modification on its parameter, we can have the new player for the . Example? This is the original embed code:






Now, look at the this line of code:

To have the video inserted using a new player design, just put version=3 parameter there. So, it will be like this:
http://www.youtube.com/v/XdQxtQFfxiM&hl=en_US&fs=1&rel=0&version=3
You will have YouTube video displayed like what you see below. Of course, you can still modify out it looks using another player parameters.

I personally like the new player design. So, I modified all video codes used at my videoblog to have the new look. It didn’t take much time since I replaced the codes using search and replace plugin. :)
