How To Embed YouTube Videos in Blogger Comments
We have debated many times that why YouTube is the world’s #1 online broadcasting website, but anyone had ever thought of embedding the videos in their Comments. Perhaps, it is extremely straightforward to embed a video in an HTML Doc, but embedding them in Comments appears to be a rusty task. While investigating, we came across a robust plugin oEmbed specification. They have a simplest API that helps a website provider to embed multiple contents on his website. 

At first go it appeared to be an uphill task because Blogger neither support PHP nor Python. Therefore, creating a JavaScript file that provides same functionalities was a bit taught. However, after some hours of hard work our intellectual developing team finally nailed it i.e. http://oembed-js.appspot.com/?url=[Youtbe-URL][&callback=foo].

Now the Main problem is that, how we should utilize it? We can just Paste the YouTube Video link in Blogger Comments and it would automatically catch the video details, and would embed it in Comments. Surprise, it seems like we have finally, solved the mystery.

The Solution on how to Embed YouTube Videos in Blogger Comments:

Now In order to convert the YouTube video link into an embedded video it’s essential to include the JavaScript coding. Once, it is good to go, all we have to do is to comment proper YouTube Video URL in Comments. First follow the following instructions.

Go to Blogger.com >> Template >> Edit HTML >> Proceed. Now within the Template, Search (CTRL+F) for the ending </head> Tag and just above it paste the following JavaScript Coding.  

<script src='http://code.jquery.com/jquery-latest.js' type='text/javascript'></script>
<script type='text/javascript'>

<script src='https://mybloggerlab.googlecode.com/files/YTcomment.js' type='text/javascript'></script>
<script type='text/javascript'>


Once everything is done hit the “Save Template” button. Now whenever a visit would insert a YouTube video link in Comments it would automatically embed it within the comment box. This JavaScript is flexible and works on almost all commenting systems of blogger whether its default or personalized. 

However, if anyone wants to display the Videos’ URL instead of embedding then in that scenario they can make use of the following code. Remember: to replace, the URL according to your desire needs. Also keep in mind it would only work on YouTube videos because the script is designed only for it.

[video=youtube-url-here]

In greater many cases, people might complain an issue in loading speed of a web page that has lots of Movies attached. In that case, we can try Lazy loading YouTube Videos technique that almost saves 60% of memory space. Thus, helps in speeding up a web page that even have 20 to 25 videos attached.

Great captured, but no one will allow you to embed your video in his/her blog, because it will be got overload because of the more embed scripts.

Yup, it would slow down the speed of the page but, we can use Lazy Loading Script and efficiently increase the speed of a website even if there is 20+ videos.
