I received an amail for mark askin for ideas, i send that above, but i dont know if him receive that on the newsletter email so i posting it here:

Hi Mike, i heave an idea for You.

As a blogger one thing i aways wanted is to heave more control over the Youtube embed, people at google just abandoned the embed, i will list some things that would be very nice to make in a super embed plugin.

To achieve this we can make a fake player using the lazyload tech.
Ex. http://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-youtube-lyte/,
http://yabtb.blogspot.com.br/2011/12/lazy-load-youtube-videos.html,
http://www.newmediacampaigns.com/blog/lazyytjs-a-jquery-plugin-to-lazy-load-youtube-videos.

And them:

Embed Pro (title sugestion)

Features:

Customize player: Option to send a custon file with the play buttons following a template. (see attached files)

Customize thumd: Sometimes the standard youtube thumb is ugly, whith this option we can send a custon one in a menu like the "Featured Image".

Elarge locally: Is very common people click on the youtube logo to se the video larger (but not necessary full screen). To make this i imagined an extra button on the upper-right portion of the player that opens an overlay with the player large and even an comment box and maybe an space for ads. (see attached files)

Parameters box: An box to paste the youtube parameters and heave more control on the generated player.
Ex. [ wmode=transparent&autohide=1&egm=0&&ps=docs&vq=large&modestbranding=1&rel=0&showinfo=0&theme=light&color=red&showsearch=0&origin=http://www.examle.com/"]

That options only would be great. Other things tha could be this plugin a real ultimate would be:

Compatibility with more sites, like vimeo, dailymotion and playwire.

Compatibility with schema.org for SEO.

Genetation of a video sitemap for SEO.

Download the sddefault and maxresdefault of the video to library on first save.
Ex. http://i1.ytimg.com/vi/B6-vCNUqEnU/sddefault.jpg // http://i1.ytimg.com/vi/B6-vCNUqEnU/maxresdefault.jpg

Sorry for the weak english, hope you guys like that ideia.
