API key

This app uses my V3 API key from youtube. If you want to get in control you better can get your own API key.
Got to and create your own API key.
After that go to /plugins/tinymce-youtube/youtube/js/youtube.js
and open in any editor. Change what you need (API key, default width, height) , save and upload


For now the non-wp version
