I know most everyone probably knows to do this... but thought it might be handy just in case...

You can alter the look by changing that one output line in the functions.inc.
E.g., here is what I did:

$retval = '<object width="425" height="350"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/' . $whichtube . '&hl=en_US&fs=1&rel=0&color1=0x2b405b&color2=0x6b8ab6"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent" ></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/' . $whichtube . '&hl=en_US&fs=1&rel=0&color1=0x2b405b&color2=0x6b8ab6" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" wmode="transparent" width="640" height="505"></embed></object>';

I know it seems redundant to post this when you look at the code, but thought it might be handy.

Also, thanks for making the plugin installer for those lazy people like myself Smile

If you use the Autotags plugin instead, you can also make similar tags for other video sites like Vimeo. And editing an tag is much easier in the Autotags plugin because you can edit the tags online.

One of the sites I'm working for, with a slightly pimped Youtube autotag, look at the right column: http://www.campersite.nl/bestemmingen/belgie/vlaanderen.php

Thanks anyway!
