I love me some Flying Lotus and it so happens he just released the first track of his forthcoming album “You’re Dead”. The song is called “Never Catch me” and it features Kendrick Lamar in the first part and a friggin’ great bass-synth in the second part (around 2:30).

Power users of WP YouTube Lyte might be particularly interested in the version that is being pushed out as we speak. 1.3.0 comes with an API, allowing you to substantially change the way the plugin works. You have the following filters to play around with;
lyte_settings; filter to change values in the settingsArray without changing the actual setting
lyte_content_preparse; filter to change the_content before the httpv-links are being parsed
lyte_match_preparse_fragment; filter to change an individual httpv-link before it is parsed
lyte_match_postparse_template; filter to change the parsed code before it is merged back in the_content
lyte_content_postparse; filter to parse the_content before it is being handed over to the next plugin
lyte_css; filter to change WP YouTube Lyte’s CSS
lyte_actionsfilters; action to add extra actions or filters, e.g. to make sure widget_text is parsed by lyte_parse as well
The plugin now comes with “lyte_helper.php_example” which is an sample plugin file that, when copied to “/wp-content/plugins/lyte_helper.php” can be activated as a separate plugin and which contains examples of how the API can be used. For the less tech-savvy users, these are some of the other changes in 1.3.0 (from the changelog):
Support for higher quality thumbnails by adding #hqThumb=1 to httpv-link
You can disable microdata on a per-video level by adding #noMicrodata=1 to the httpv-link when microdata is enabled.
Checkbox on admin-page to flush WP YouTube Lyte cache (which holds title, description, … from YouTube)
As always; feedback, bug reports, feature requests, criticism or code suggestions are more then welcome in the comments or via the contact form. But whatever you do, make sure to have fun while doing it! This embedded YouTube audio track (a 2h BBC essential mix by Flying Lotus from back in 2008) might help, if you’re into that type of music that is;

De clip van “Parisian Goldfish”, FlyingLotus‘ nieuwste, wordt overal gebannen. Zouden die “flashing lights” er voor iets tussen zitten, of nemen de YouTubes dan toch vooral aanstoot aan de “meer grafische” aspecten van Dance Floor Dale? Oordeel gerust zelf, maar weet wel; Not Safe For Work!
