Add 'Youtube Sidebar Widget' to pool of widgets

  1. Many of us have heard of a little site called YouTube though the only way we can share YouTube videos is in a Post or a Page. Why stop there, WordPress? I'm at a loss why there is no better option in the available widgets. Embedding code into a Text Widget offers a very poor user experience.

    The gigya method is more or less the same as using the Text Widget. The video size remains small which is not a good user experience.

    There is an awesome widget that would fit perfectly into WordPress.com blogs because it presents a YouTube video, a playlist or a username's videos larger than an embed and keeps the reader/viewer on the blog. Win/Win!

    How often does anyone watch a video that is the size of a sidebar and how many people actually know how to enlarge a YouTube video without ending up on YouTube.com vs staying on the site with the embeded video?

    I can't be the only one who would love to use this on their site. WP Team, please add this widget to the wp.com widget pool. =)

    Who else is with me?

    The blog I need help with is garyploski.wordpress.com.

  2. The other post was added to the wrong forum so I added it here because it is an idea for a widget not an available WP widget.
