    thanks coolkid123, but this is not what I'm talking about.
    it's basically a plugin that will generate thumbnails of related youtube videos on every posts according to their tags.

    Tubepress will create thumbnails of related videos on each post - not sure if this is what you're looking for?

    Hmmm It Says It's Just A Gallery So Not Really Related But Do You Choose Which Videos You Show?

    You decide what keywords you want to target and then make a post/page with the keyword within Tubepress tags (as far as I remember, been a while). It then pulls up a main video based on your keyword and whatever criteria you set ie most viewed, top rated etc.

    Underneath the main video are the thumbnails to related videos.

    Demo available:

    PHP:

    There is no plugin for wordpress currently that will do this. You will have to do it manually. I am using this code on my article directory.

    Tried to paste the code but will not show up here. You will have to visit my page at

    HTML:
     http://www.articledirectoryproject.com/show-youtube-related-videos-on-your-wordpress-site/  
    This code uses the Google Ajax API. I have it set up with wordpress php to show current category and current tags as the keywords for the video display. you can find more details at the article I wrote at.

    HTML:
     http://www.articledirectoryproject.com/show-youtube-related-videos-on-your-wordpress-site/  
    Be sure to submit your articles there as well.

    Thanks,
    Nathaniel

    I ended up writing my own plugin for tubepress to allow for the single insert based on the posts tags. I have it automated to search the rss feed and pull a video ID, a certain percentage of time for each post view.
