Custom You Tube Video Players

To create a You Tube Video Viewer, go into your You Tube account.  Go to More.;Custom Video Players.
Create customized video players for publishing to websites or blogs. You can change the colors and contents of a player at any time, and all instances of that player will automatically update to the new settings. Be sure you have saved some videos to a Playlist or as Favorites. You can choose the type of player and which Playlist to use. You Tube will then generate an embeddable code for your blog or wiki. To use on a Blogger account, make sure you choose the Edit HTML tab before pasting in code.
Clicking on the left and right tabs above with allow you to see which videos I've chosen for this play list. Click on the video of choice to view on this player.

UPDATE: 5/6/09:  I've seen the error message on this player for a couple of days now. I tried re-doing the custom video player and reinstalling the code, but to no avail.  I will think this through and see if I can find a resolution. Has anyone else had problems with this app?
