Embedding Playlists from Youtube

I finally discovered how to embed playlists on this blog. I was looking in the wrong spot. Youtube is surprisingly daft on this. It took about an hour of hunting Youtube's help files to find anything about embedding playlists. Finally I found this page:
The information there is completely wrong.

Further searching lead me to this page:
Here you will find this brilliant advice: "The easiest way to embed a playlist is to create a custom player."

This is the reason why you have been forced to watch those videos inside a box with an ugly border with no way to fullscreen. I have since figured it out. All is well, and I am going back and replacing the shitty custom players (of which I have had to create a separate instance for each blog post!).
