I'd like to display You Tube video's on my site without losing the viewer.

I've tried the extension "video inserter" but it appears to only send the viewer to You Tube. Then I tried embedding with code from You Tube and it worked fine but then set the viewer up to watch more unrelated videos (which I don't want).

Any tips on the best way to do this?

Did you already looked into the YouTube API's? You can do more with them then just embedding a YouTube vid.

Hi, first up I'm a newbie, but this is interesting as I'm working out how to do something similar with the ability for vistors to upload to youtube via my site, then have them viewable as a custom collection from my site i.e. use youtube to host via browser. I was just about to install Adobe Air and widget exchange in the hope that there may be something I can work with, am I on the right track please?
I'm happy to learn and work through the Youtube APIs but wondered if there were customiable widgets already out there, I've not identified one on the web yet.
Any advice is appreciated, thanks.
