Youtube

a better youtube api for embedding videos & fetching metadata. It basically automates all of the script fetching, provides a consistent timeupdate event, and applies a duration & currentTime attribute to the object to make it more consistent with html5 vids.

Installation

Install with component(1):

$ component install bmcmahen/youtube

Or use dist/youtube.js under the global youtube.

Example

<div id='target'></div>
<script src='script.js'></script>
<script>
var YouTube = require('youtube');
var options = {
  height: 500,
  width: 600
};

var url = 'http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BV-FUvhldZ8';
var target = document.getElementById('target');
var vid = new YouTube(url, target, options);
vid.play();
</script>
