Tracking Youtube Video Activity On Non-Marketo Homepage

I am trying to find ways to track lead activity on a video on our homepage. This article was helpful: http://developers.marketo.com/blog/embed-a-youtube-video-with-lead-tracking-on-a-marketo-landing-pag...

However, it appears like the video opens to a new window (Marketo landing page) to watch the video rather than staying on our website like our current video here: Business VoIP Phone Systems | Top Rated VoIP Provider | Jive

Is there anyway to track this on our homepage rather than link the video to a new window?

Search my past posts for "Munchkin YouTube."  There's no barrier to tracking YouTube video plays/player events on non-Marketo pages (as long as they are running Munchkin, of course).  You just need to follow the right plugin method.

I've found that there is a lot of customization to get this done based on your website design. What WE had to do was add an attribute to our A Tag with our specific youtube id (where we host our videos). So, our modal is:  <a class="modal" data-youtube-id="xyz" href="abc">

Then we have a SC that watches for that attribute with specific youtube id:

Clicks Link on web page

Link is: <homepage>/xyz   (where xyz is your video id)

Are you referring to this, Sanford? MktoMunchkin :: 2 YouTube Players - JSFiddle

Yes, that would be one of my older demos.

... here too, your homepage is using my YouTube JS... confused about why switching platforms is your accepted answer, since you're successfully doing this with a YouTube embed?
