YouTube Improves Playlist Embedding

The other day I was talking about downloading videos from YouTube playlists. Today, Google posted a new update that improves the way webmasters and bloggers embed YouTube playlists on blog posts and websites.

Google launched support for embedding lists of videos in the YouTube player in March this year. However, it was pointed out that at first glance it didn’t look very much like a playlist. Visually there is little difference between an embedded single YouTube video and an embedded playlist. For example, this is how an embedded playlist looks like.

Now there is a new parameter showinfo=1 which when added to the embedded code will permanently display a list of video thumbnails at the bottom of the video player. Here’s how the new video player looks.

What is done here is the parameter &showinfo=1 added at the end of the video URL like this:

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo

Facebook’s current layout, the so called Timeline, features a prominent, large cover photo that some people are using in a lot of different creative ways. Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event. Although you can change the cover photo as often as you like, it’s meant to be static – something which you design and leave it for at least a few weeks or months like a redesigned website. However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run.
