Control embedded youtube videos

Hey, i have a webpage that has some 15 embedded youtube vids (all working flawlessly). i'd like to control their overall behavior so that only one video can play at any given time (if one video is pressed (to play..) then any other video that may have been played would stop).The problem is that i know absolutely nothing about js... (and i believe therein lies the solution... correct?)Am i over my head with this or is there a relatively nice and elegant solution?thanks in advance!

I don't think that you'll be able to use Javascript to control that, there will be a security problem because it is an iframe pointing to another domain. There might be documentation on Youtube that would show you how to maybe embed something using HTML 5 video tags which you could control with Javascript.

I see. Ok. Two quick question though: 1. Is html5 supported through all web browsers/platforms out there? Cause that's my biggest setback of using html5. 2. if I already have an HTML-based website, what should I do to switch it to html5-based? How's it going to affect the current HTML?If this question sounds weird it's because I don't have a firm basis or any extensive knowledge regarding web stuff..). Sorry..

It's supported by all modern browsers, yes. Not older ones.http://caniuse.com/#search=videoThe differences aren't major, one of the big differences is that HTML 5 adds semantic elements to describe specific parts of the page. So there are defined elements for header, footer, nav, article, section, etc. There's a page here which describes some of the changes:http://www.w3schools.com/html/html5_migration.aspThere's a section on HTML 5 also:http://www.w3schools.com/html/html5_intro.asp
