I tried every one of the top ten plugins to embed youtube videos on my web pages, trying to avoid the large cost of page speed of a direct embed. Most are complicated and require too much to start up. Most played poorly or not at all on mobile or phones (safari). This is so easy, I use the Gutenberg block, and the block opens right into the sidebar. It worked instantly. So happy! My GTMertrix score is awesome, with no lingering video player load slowing things down, yet the video plays easily. This is powerful, simple, responsive, and fast! Update: #1 The Video start & end time and end time allows me to open the video to the relative content. #2 It automatically picks up the thumbnail, with an option to add your own. #3 This is the first Yotube video that respects SEO click rate. I send users to the right content, right away, with no loss of page speed. This plugin is really growing on me.
