Yoast Video SEO 1.3


  • Even more YouTube embed fixes, also fixes empty Youtube ID issue.
  • Properly grab thumbnail from YouTube instead of "assuming" a URL.
  • Improve code that grabs duration from YouTube API.


  • Add support for searching through category / tag / term descriptions for video content.
  • Get viewcount from YouTube API.
  • Add option to hide sitemap from everyone except admins and Googlebot.
  • Add option to disable the video integration on a single post and page by adding a checkbox on the Video tab.
  • Changed the way reindex gets called, so the admin keeps working immediately after a reindex without a refresh.
  • Added option to force reindexing of old posts that have already been indexed as having video (normally
    they're just refreshed but no external calls are being done).
