Dependencies

Usage

var youtubeId = "Q4-MnX5PfO8";
YoutubeVideo(youtubeId, function(video){
  console.log(video.title);
  var webm = video.getSource("video/webm", "medium");
  console.log("WebM: " + webm.url);
  var mp4 = video.getSource("video/mp4", "medium");
  console.log("MP4: " + mp4.url);

  $("<video controls='controls'/>").attr("src", webm.url).appendTo("body");
});
