wouldn't it be better / nicer to use the 'standard' recommended way of embedding
youtube videos with an <iframe> tag instead of the "shockwave-flash only" way?
I am trying to get rid of the flash player wherever I can and it would be nice
if this could be done.
I don't think this will introduce any cons, 'cause the <iframe>-Method will
still select the flash-player for those clients who have installed it.
So in general you have to exchange the old:
<object width="425" height="350">
<param value="true" name="allowFullScreen">
<embed width="425" height="350" wmode="transparent" allowfullscreen="true"
<iframe width="425" height="350" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen=""
The video ID (TPxdBG0XATY) is chosen arbitrary here
And the "vq" (video-quality) parameter is optional, too. But setting it to auto seems to be best.
I would really like to see this (by the way recommended way) implemented.
P.S.: If anyone fears the new, a user-setting (HTML5 vs. Flash) might be the way to go.
