Would it not be nicer if the videos (e.g. youtube links) would show inline and not as a popup? I also think that the video thumbnail is pretty small. Users tend to click first on the title link and get redirected to youtube.
I did the same thing. I also didn’t find it obvious that the image would pop up the video. It was a pleasant surprise and I think the other link should do it too. Or just embed the video right there using the oEmbed or something.
I do like the embedded video which shows with a dark-transparent background of my website and on top it shows the YouTube-video, but the video stays on my own website. This is a great feature of this plugin.
How to change the the current opening in a new window when clicking on the Title-Link ? I do not want to forward my users to YouTube.com, but rather have them stay on my own website.
