Posting a video here in order to configure AMP for WordPress to work correctly with YouTube Embeds.
If you haven’t put AMP on your WordPress website yet, its certainly worth a look. Making your site load fast on mobile is important.
What about the open web? Well, my mobile pages load in under 1 second globally, served pretty much directly by Google. I understand the small chunk which is “paid” in return for this. Its a fair trade.

Video: Mark Ronson, The Business Intl. – The Bike Song
Below is a video from YouTube that you can play right now, and enjoy this track, including on your mobile webs (
visit https://robinjescott.com/mark-ronson-the-bike-song/amp/ for the AMP mobile version of this post to see what it looks like) UPDATE – this whole site is 100% AMP by default now.
“The Bike Song” Lyrics:
I run around town Around around and round The pedal to the metal The pedal to whatever Shooting round the streaky bends I hear a conversation in my head Thinking of a place to be Ising a little melody instead I won't argue with myself Today my legs are getting some help My mother tells me I should stop Go and get a real job That can't be the way that I roll Everybody's growing up Having kids and paying rent They're all getting cars of their own Gonna ride my bike until I get home
What’s That Picture at the Top?
As ever, in Ronson videos, there’s a hipster arty bit at the start… nobody is quite sure if they enjoy this part of the video, but it at least has some style, even if it’s something of a pastiche.
Below, is a copy of what I screenshotted, in case you want to look at this picture some more.

You may leave a comment below, but please note, despite featuring a YouTube video, this is not YouTube. You can’t just spout some nonsense. It won’t get published. You have to say something at least half way original or sensible. I’ve been waiting for a sensible comment since 2006… blow my mind.
