    Hi everyone,

    Just a quick question:
    Look at this page for instance: http://animehaven.org/western-cartoons/legend-of-korra-season-4-episode-12

    You can find there an embedded YT video.
    However, if I want to watch it on YT directly by clicking the button in the bottom-right corner, it brings me to a total different video.
    Even if I try to copy the video url and paste it manually, it is a link from the different video.

    I cannot see the real YT link of the video which you can see on the website.


    Someone knows how he is doing that? :D

    Looks like they have used VideoJS Library. Look at the source code.

    Basically, You can play with the code and format in any style you want. The source for video might be stored in a different server coming from a CDN and the yt link that you get redirected to when you click on YT button is also changed to different video url.

    Yeah, they might be promoting that third party yt video. Using YT interface makes it seem much more genuine and to make people to go to that YT page by clicking on that link in the bottom right like OP did.
