How to convert url to embed code from youtube url

  1. Get the video id
    $step1=explode('v=', $url);
    $step2 =explode('&',$step1[1]);
    $vedio_id = $step2[0];


  2. Create embed url from vedio id
    The iframe src of youtube is$vedio_id so the embed code would be
    < iframe src="'. $vedio_id.'" width="320" height="240" frameborder="0">
    For autoplay you use autoplay=1 parameter.
    < iframe src="'. $vedio_id.'?autoplay=1" width="320" height="240" frameborder="0">
  3. get youtube vedio thumbnail

    The embed url for vimeo is

    and iframe code for vimeo would be
    < iframe src="'.$embedurl.'" width="320" height="240" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen">

    this step is slightly diffrent then youtube in this case we will  read video files in the vimeo server and locate its thumbnail image.

    $hash = unserialize(file_get_contents("$vedio_id.php"));if (!empty($hash) && is_array($hash)) {$thumbnail_str ='';
    $fullsize_str = '';
