Notice the only unique thing is: NMAYr709-9Y

So you can just generate that embed code without having to make a http request to youtube.

eg:

// url of video
$url = 'http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NMAYr709-9Y&feature=dir';

// we get the unique video id from the url by matching the pattern
preg_match("/v=([^&]+)/i", $url, $matches);
$id = $matches[1];

// this is your template for generating embed codes
$code = '<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/{id}&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/{id}&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>';

// we replace each {id} with the actual ID of the video to get embed code for this particular video
$code = str_replace('{id}', $id, $code);

Try using <?php instead of <?

i tried but i am not getting any video.....

You need to do:

echo $code;

After the:

$code = str_replace('{id}', $id, $code);

I would prefer iframes over the objects.
PS: A complete solution to this issue would be https://github.com/dereuromark/MediaEmbed which can extract the "host slug" and "id", stores those in the DB and completes the output HTML upon display (either as iframe - preferred - or as object fallback).
