This works great for me so far.. very nicely done, sir! BTW.. I recently saw a demo of a corporate team who threw out a $1 million dollar portfolio management system in favor of a mashup they built on top of Google Spreadsheet using Google Apps Scripting .. which seems to be a sort of server side javascript that unlocks a lot of the customization and integration power of google infrastructure.. sounds cool.. will consider it for up coming cloud projects perhaps

I wrote it Only the short link - when you click on "Share" button and you see the "Link to this video:" and just copy the link from there. Where are you getting these long links?

By the way, the "*****1" was to overlay the trasparent "Play" icon image over the thumbnail to make it look like a real "flash player", while it really just an image linked to a video. The good thing about it is that this will work even with javascript disabled - then it just a link to youtube's page

I think I clicked on the Share button below the vid and it showed different links.. BTW play icon looks good.. and the "gentle" ui slide down works for me.. very classy treatment IMO..

note: I first tried to paste in the youtube URL from the address bar.. didn't work of course.. so pasted in the "share link" and that worked fine I think

I wrote if for parsing links from the Youtube "Share" form, and ony the short link for now. I will add support for HD video soon, it requires some type of validation in case someone just adds hd=1 to the link but the video does not have hd version... People do strangest things....

this is actually very relevant for me.. my main project this week is producing flash and video content and loading it into a SCORM compliant LMS system.. I'm fine with the video production but a bit new to LMS.. will look at Google Apps for learning management with great interest... and the real prize IMO is KE-LMS integration.. thanx
