Smart links really are good enough now, so we're retiring this app

YouTube's thumbnail image for the video.

We're discontinuing this app as the native functionality in Confluence has finally caught up.

When we launched this app, smart links were not good, but things have improved. We think it's time everyone moved to the native smart links functionality.

We removed the autocomplete functionality a while back so that pasting a new YouTube link would revert to native smart links.

This app is not going away, so existing YouTube videos in pages will still work, but we really recommend converting all uses of this macro to use the native smart links functionality. It actually is smart now.


This app was a simple and free workaround for users who were aware of CONFCLOUD-68023 and CONFCLOUD-72533 and required an immediate fix. Both issues are now fixed.

Support for:

  • Individual videos
  • Playlists
  • Embed URLs
  • Short links
  • Mobile video URLs
  • Custom video start times
  • "Full screen" button to maximise the video to the size of your browser
