    Is there a way to change the y0utube embed code on my website to prevent people from double clicking the video and go to the y0utube page of the video?

    try using an absolutely positioned div on top of the movie with the height adjusted so it doesn't cover the controls. The best option for that would be to use the yt javascript api for a chromeless video (search youtube chromeless api)

    Thx a lot for the fast response.
    I was hoping just one line of copypaste code would do the job and I could avoid getting that techy (I am not too familiar with the java stuff) but I'll give it a shot.
