I recently co-developed a video-based tool called EmbedPlus that might be relevant to users here that frequently embed videos. The goal is to enhance video embeds with attractive features that popular players don't currently offer. Given a YouTube link and a few seconds, the first release applies the APIs to generate enhanced embed code that adds features like: like slow motion, movable zoom, 3rd party annotations and real-time Internet reactions. The service could be useful to anyone wanting to offer viewers more playback options without having to actually alter original video content.
To keep this short, Iíll just refer you to our homepage, which offers more details and motivation. Finally, we are *really* looking for feedback that might improve the service or lead to new features; please contact us with the info here.
