Workaround for Mobile Safari quirk in WP YouTube Lyte

Yesterday I released WP YouTube Lyte 1.1.5, which amongst other things has a workaround for the bug that required 2 clicks to play an Lyte-embedded Youtube on an iOS-device. The reason for the bug: WP YouTube Lyte replaces the “lyte player” with an autoplaying YouTube embed upon the first click, but Mobile Safari does not allow any media to autoplay. 1.1.5 now checks for the useragent (yeah, I know) and immediately adds a normal YouTube embed instead of the Lyte one if that useragent contains the strings iPhone, iPad or iPod.

So there you have it, only one click to hear and see this great “Here we go Magic“-clip  on your iPad.

Neat huh? ;-)
