Embed Youtube Video using iFrame JS Player API

Here's the code to embed Youtube video using their new iFrame Javascript Player API. This is the piece of code I also used to embed YouTube video in my iOS application. Also, it is possible to play it inline. Not the typical fullscreen playback.

Read more about the iFrame Player API Reference.

It's also worth mentioning that on iOS6 devices, autoplay just doesn't work anymore. Apple added this restriction to save user's bandwidth. Read more about User Control of Downloads Over Cellular Networks.
