Update – We have also released an effective HTML5 rich YouTube player embed plugin named “IFRAME embed for YouTube” through which you can embed a YouTube video in WordPress without pasting any code. The benefit of using this plugin is that, it checks the browser’s capability whether that can handle HTML5, if yes then it will show HTML5 YouTube player or normal flash player. As most of the recent browsers like Internet Explorer 9, Firefox 4, Chrome 10 are HTML5 rich, so the new player of YouTube will appear instead of regular flash player.

This way your embedded videos will be visible on mobile devices which doesn’t support flash.
