WordPress Plugin: Embed Video Link

There are many plugins available for embedding YouTube video here in the WordPress market, but they embed videos itself. I was looking out for a plugin that embeds a YouTube video as a beautiful and informative link.

Here is the sample output of this plugin:

Doesn’t that look good? All you need is a YouTube video id (video must be public) and a Google API Key.

Now wherever you need the video link to be rendered, just insert a shortcode similar to one below in the post or page in its own line.

[evl vid="rNXLe-uMjiQ"]Sample Render[/evl]

Here “vid” attribute is provided with the id extracted from the YouTube video url, for example the id in the above sample is extracted from this url’s highlighted part “https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rNXLe-uMjiQ

Here are a few benefits of this plugin:

  1. The links are now shown beautifully, and provide more SEO data.
  2. The videos are always available and accessible as they are played in their natural habitat, i.e. in YouTube.
  3. YouTube thumbnails are shown, in place of just a link.
  4. There is a detailed information shown next to the thumbnail.
  5. If your video is monetised, you must be aware that YouTube will not always show the ads in the embedded videos. So, you are losing some money even the person is watching the video.

You can think of many other reason yourself to get inclined towards this and if you do, here is the link for you to download the plugin.

Note: There are many features in plan for this plugin, like customization of the theme and colors or select the fields which you want to render. Also, this render looks good on a dark wordpress theme as there is no customization.
