A chrome-less player for YouTube movies!


Use this player to show your favorite YouTube movies on your page! Or easily transform your Youtube movie into a HTML background!


Tips and tricks:

You can easily create a background video switcher as the button below:

The code for this is:


v. 2.7.8



Also available as WordPress® component.

You can find the WordPress plugin here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wpmbytplayer/ The WordPress component is internationalized and it’s available in English, Italian and Spanish (thanks to Andrew Kurtis http://www.webhostinghub.com). below a short tutorial on how to install and configure it on your WordPress site.


What’s new in 2.7.8:

  • Feature: Added a new option, stopMovieOnBlur,  to control the pause behavior when the  window loose the focus.

What’s new in 2.7.7:

  • Fix: Something changed in the YT API that was preventing Firefox to get .getVideoLoadedFraction() at video load breaking the plug-in.

What’s new in 2.7.5:

  • Feature: Added a new event: YTPTime that fires every seconds returning the current time.
  • Changed getVideoID() method to return also available playlist (not implemented yet).

What’s new in 2.7.2:

  • Bug fix: Fixed a conflict with the Bootstrap framework.
  • Bug fix: Something is changed in the Youtube API that was preventing the auto-play of the video; now the “can play state” is more accurate and should speed up the start of the video.

    Hi Matteo,

    Great PlugIn!

    Is it possible to have the background videos chosen randomly from a file? If so, what is the code?

    Also, is it possible to echo the name of the video and any details about it, at the bottom of the page? (again, if so, what is the code?).

    Many thanks.

    Also, I tried to make a small donation, but your “Donate” buttom would not work :( Do you have a new link for donations?

    MAny thanks,
