Easy Youtube & Vimeo Video Embeds With jQuery - VideoBox

VideoBox is a lightweight jQuery plugin that makes it easier to embed Youtube, Vimeo, or Kaltura videos with custom player parameters into the webpage.

How to use it:

1. To get started, you need to load the jQuery VideoBox plugin after jQuery.

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-VERSION.slim.min.js"></script>
<script src="videobox.js"></script>

2. Create a div placeholder for the video and use data-youtube, data-viemo, or data-kaltura to specify the video URL/ID you want to embed.

<h2>Youtube Video</h2>
<div class="demo" data-youtube="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c-5WsFKlKDk"></div>
<h2>Vimeo Video</h2>
<div class="demo" data-vimeo="https://vimeo.com/124077529"></div>
<h2>Kaltura Video</h2>
<div class="demo" data-kaltura="VIDEO ID HERE"></div>

3. Just call the function on the DIV container and done.
