I would like to have a main window with an autoplay YouiTube video, with a series of thumbnail pictures scrolled under the main window. Clicking on any thumbnail should start the referenced video (and stopping the current video if playing). Any way to do this? I have very little understanding of scripts, and what little I do know may be just enough to get me in trouble...

EX isn't really a webdesign outsource service, but I'm sure you'll get enough tips to put together a solution yourself.

For a starter, take a look at this "tutorial" which will show you how to autostart a youtube clip, link to one, skip to a specific point in the clip, etc.
