jQuery selector for YouTube iframe
Does anyone know how to select a YouTube iframe with jQuery.
I am designing a player based on YouTube's js api and my plugin basically selects all of the iframes on a page and transforms then into custom YouTube players. It works ok but isn't suitable for websites that have other iframe content other than YouTube because the plugin will remove them indiscriminately and try to put the player in their place.
thanks in advance

If possible try to add a code which will identified the iframe youtube content and neglect other iframe content.
var video = $(this);
var vidSrc = "";
vidSrc = video.attr('src');
}PHP Programming It’s more than just writing code

Thanks for your input, that's a good idea, my code actually does something similar already within the plugin but ideally I would like to select the YouTube video element before entering the plugin as in:

Hi there silversurfer5150,
You can use the Attribute Starts With Selector
var youTubeIframes = $('iframe[src^="http://www.youtube.com/embed/"]');
