Hi Omar,
This plugin looks amazing and you can create thumbnails so that you have more control over the design and images on your site - [[LINK href="http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/youtube-with-fancy-zoom/"]]YouTube Fancy Zoom[[/LINK]].
Good luck,

I recommend using [[LINK href="http://www.shadowbox-js.com/"]]ShadowBox[[/LINK]], and using the iframe player support it comes with. You can use this to open YouTube videos in a lightbox.

Easy Frame work is a CSS/HTML/JavaScript framework that includes the code to do this. The demo page can be found here under the Flash heading: [[LINK href="http://easyframework.com/demo_popup.php"]]http://easyframework.com/demo_popup.php[[/LINK]].

You can either check to see how he does it (it's free) or simply use the framework. Hope that helps.
