The best WP YouTube Lyte to date!

Today WP YouTube Lyte 1.2.0 got finally pushed out the gates! This new version is beyond any doubt the best version to date, with the following new features:
  • LYTE embeds are now fully responsive
  • automatic inclusion of scheme.org microdata (VideoObject) (also known as “rich snippets”)
  • even better performance (less requests; was 5, now 3)
  • updated to the current YouTube look & feel, see this YouTube video about microdata:

Although I did go through a small beta-cycle, with feedback from 5 users (thanks guys), I am pretty sure there still are bugs that will rear their ugly head in the following days (some strings haven’t been translated yet, for example). Do contact me, add a comment here or create a post on the wordpress.org forum in case you encounter unexpected behavior!
