YouTube Discontinues it's Custom Player

YouTube has recently discontinued it's embedded Custom Video Player, with the announcement being a bit under the radar.

The feature has not been entirely removed, as existing Custom Players created before the change should still work (although it seems that some are having a few issues, according to user feedback).  YouTube suggests using it's Embedded Playlists feature from now on.

Aside from the API blog post, you can read more about the change (or request help with an existing player if it's not working correctly) on this YouTube forums post.
