Youtuber2 WordPress Plugin
Version 1.0, Feb 9, 2009

The features we’ve added to the plugin include the ability to:

  • Turn on or off the embedded search bar.
  • Disable the related video links which appear at the end of the video.
  • Disable the title and ranking stars (and other info) which Youtube often bundles with any videos you embed.

Installation is pretty standard as with any WordPress plugin:

  1. Download the zip file and extract the contents.
  2. Upload the ‘youtuber2’ folder to your plugins directory (wp-content/plugins/).
  3. Activate the plugin through the ‘plugins’ page in WordPress.
  4. See ‘Settings->Youtuber2’ to adjust the display size and other options.

If you’ve got any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us for assistance in setting up or installing it.
