    Nice video. I copied your code, modified it for my sample video/thumbnail, and video with options shows fine. I did comment out the lines to test for embedded YouTube code within the tags but I had a problem as it only shows in IE v.9. Firefox 11.0 and Chrome 17.0.963.83 do not show the YouTube code. If I comment out the tags entirely and just have the embedded YouTube code inside the body, the YouTube video works fine in all three browsers. Any suggestions?
