Anytime you add TubePress to a PHP page, set the options

A common question we get from users is:
How can I have an embedded video player that automatically shows the latest video from my YouTube or Vimeo channel?
With QuickPlay, this is easy to do for any collection of videos. The trick is to set
orderBy="newest". For instance, say that you’d like to show the latest video from YouTube user
engineerguyvideo. The following invocation would achieve this:
<?php print TubePressPro::getHTML('mode="user" userValue="engineerguyvideo" resultCountCap="1" orderBy="newest" enableQuickplay="true" theme="tubepress/quickplay" embeddedWidth="480" embeddedHeight="270"');
The result is an always-updating, fully customizable single video embed that you can embed anywhere on your site.
