YouTube embed

Permalink
When embedding a video from YouTube with the YouTube block, concrete5 uses the following code:
<div id="youtube244" class="youtubeBlock"><div id="youtube244_video">Asenna Adobe Flash nähdäksesi tämä sisältö.</div></div>
   <script type="text/javascript">
   //<![CDATA[
   params = {
      wmode: "transparent"
   };
   flashvars = {};
   swfobject.embedSWF('http://www.youtube.com/v/yQdnCQ4dmSg&hl=en', 'youtube244_video', '425', '344', '8.0.0', false, flashvars, params);
   //]]>
   </script>


Why doesn't concrete5 use the new iframe method to embed videos?

Like this:
<iframe width="480" height="360" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/yQdnCQ4dmSg" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>


If I understand correctly, the new embed method also supports HTML5 so the video would also work in devices without Flash.

So it does...

I think the Finnish language file is affecting the overlay window because there are scrollbars and the option for that is not completely visible at first.

Also I think the iframe method could be used as default. :)

When new users add a video, I don't think they realise the difference between those two and I think the iframe method should be preferred.

But thanks for the tip... Should double check first before posting.

then let's see if we can change the default behaviour ;-)
