    Doing This!
    Been racking my brains with how to do this for the past few days, I've searched high & low, but can't figure out how to change the target URL of an embedded Youtube video.

    So instead of it taking them to the Youtube page where that video is located when someone clicks on the embedded video, I want it to take them to another URL. I can't for the life of me figure out how though.

    I know people have done it and that it is possible, but can't figure out how so thought I'd ask you guys as some of you will probably be able to get round this in a doddle.

    Appreciate any help in advance guys!

    Custom flv players could be linked to anything. And you only have to make your video look like it's from yt.

    Just use a screenshot of the video about to be played, and link it to whatever you want.

    Just take a screenshot and save it in high quality (.png).

    If that doesn't work for you, you could have someone create a flash applet that when the play button or screen is clicked on, it links you somewhere else. This is a little higher quality but is about 10x as much work.
