Allows you to embed youtube videos without sending data to google on every page view. Required for a GDPR (German: DSGVO) compliant website.

== Description ==

This is meant to be used in the european union, but can be used in any other country where you want some more privacy for your users.

No settings required, youtube links get replaced. Adjust the displayed message according to your local needs. 

See for more technical information.

= German Background =

Das deutsche Datenschutzrecht - und jetzt die europäische DSGVO - ist relativ streng. Der normale Youtube Einbindenlink entspricht nicht (unbedingt) den Datenschutzbestimmungen.

Dieses Plugin baut erst eine Verbindung zu Youtube auf, wenn der Nutzer aktiv auf den Abspielen-Knopf klickt.

Es ist kein Setup erforderlich und es gibt dementsprechend auch keine Einstellungen.

== Installation ==

You need to enable url_allow_fopen.

As any other wordpress plugin.

Download the relase zip from the github repository or from, upload it to your wordpress.

It simply works out of the box, no configuration required.

== Frequently Asked Questions ==

If you find a problem, please open an issue on github:

= Can I enable caching =

Yes, click the ckeckbox in settings

== Screenshots ==
