Youtube PlugIn

Andrew Gray Newbie

We're using the tagbuilt 10.2 javascript and the youtube plug in as per PL's document (re-downloaded today) - it's dying with the following error. Looks like it's missing a definition of _wtyoutube....


Uncaught ReferenceError: _wtyoutube is not defined youtube_plugin.js:111



(anonymous function)www-widgetapi-vflibewTx.js:26

(anonymous function)


I'm guessing that the error is simple to fix but I'm not a js expert and I'd like to get this right not guess.


So what's wrong?

    Hi Andrew,

    Did you add the plugin into the Webtrends html where you load the Webtrends base tag?


    The code for adding a plugin to a tag includes naming the function in the plugin that is launched and looks like:






    Obviously you need to make the src path correct though for your plugin location.





    Next you should see this function declared in your plugin so it shouldn't have an issue finding _wtyoutube.


    function () {

         _wtyoutube = new WebTrendsYouTube(tag, plugin);

    Just for fun, here is a really simple test page with some of these plugins working on it:
