                  This is a moderate guide about media players.
                  I'm still working on improving/fixing this thread, feel free to leave a few words or some constructive suggestions! C:
                  *I might take a while to reply due to school circumstances*

                  Please <3? A popular status would make this guide stand out!

                  You need to know how to find and put the new YouTube URL into your profile.
                      Find a video you like on YouTube.
                      Right-click on the video and left-click Copy Video URL

                  Because of a change in YouTube, you now need to put this code in to make it work properly:
                  http://youtube.googleapis.com/v/VIDEO_ID_HERE?version=2

                  This is a VIDEO ID :
                      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9bZkp7q19f0
                      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=--wK-cxx-1Soao
                      http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=QNRxHyZDU-Q&list=LLNwz8xphr5QgWOnDJpsbDvw
                      http://www.youtube.com/watch?list=PL9tY0BWXOZFvlFPYc0kyPqlcpWjWF6DVB&v=ekPBOVgGRSA&feature=player_detailpage

                  __________________
                  CLASSIC v1 PROFILE
                  Go to your Profile Preferences page and paste the YouTube URL into the box under the multimedia section.
                  __________________
                  CURRENT v2 PROFILE
                  Go to your profile
                  Click Edit My Profile Layout at the top right corner.
                  copy-paste the YouTube URL into your media panel

                  The YouTube box is the box that pops up when you click the "edit" button on the top right corner of a panel.

                  You can get HEX CODES HERE.

                  Okay, first we begin with the code we now have:
                  http://youtube.googleapis.com/v/xxxxxxxxxxx?version=2

                  Then you add the codes below to the end. (The order doesn't matter, you can add as many as you want.)
                      EXAMPLES
                      http://youtube.googleapis.com/v/xxxxxxxxxxx?version=2&loop=1
                      http://youtube.googleapis.com/v/xxxxxxxxxxx?version=2&autoplay=1&loop=1&color2=FFFFFF&color1=CCCCCC
                      http://youtube.googleapis.com/v/xxxxxxxxxxx?version=2&color1=CCCCCC&loop=1&color2=FFFFFF&autoplay=1

                  __________________
                  PLAYLIST

                  http://youtube.com/p/ooooooooooo?version=2
                  The playlist ID starts with PL, copy AFTER the PL

                      EXAMPLES

                      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HwSKkKrUzUk&list=PLFIuC2BOcnyZdTkePB9ghgw5ZdRxrUHkZ&feature=mh_lolz
                      http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLFIuC2BOcnyZdTkePB9ghgw5ZdRxrUHkZ&feature=mh_lolz
                      http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLFIuC2BOcnyZdTkePB9ghgw5ZdRxrUHkZ

                      &iframe width="560" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/videoseries?list=PLFIuC2BOcnyZdTkePB9ghgw5ZdRxrUHkZ" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen&&/iframe&


                  You can customize it with &autoplay=1 just like the regular video.

                  The CSS box is the large box at the right side of this page under "Theme Override".
                  You can get to this page by going to My Gaia > Account > Profile Options.
                  (The CSS box is for BOTH Current/V2 and Classic/V1 profiles!)

                  You can change any numbers in orange.
                  You can get HEX CODES HERE *you must put a # before a hex code, example: #FFFFFF
