Usage

<YouTube
  videoId={string}                  // defaults -> ''
  id={string}                       // defaults -> ''
  className={string}                // defaults -> ''
  iframeClassName={string}          // defaults -> ''
  style={object}                    // defaults -> {}
  title={string}                    // defaults -> ''
  loading={string}                  // defaults -> undefined
  opts={obj}                        // defaults -> {}
  onReady={func}                    // defaults -> noop
  onPlay={func}                     // defaults -> noop
  onPause={func}                    // defaults -> noop
  onEnd={func}                      // defaults -> noop
  onError={func}                    // defaults -> noop
  onStateChange={func}              // defaults -> noop
  onPlaybackRateChange={func}       // defaults -> noop
  onPlaybackQualityChange={func}    // defaults -> noop
/>

For convenience it is also possible to access the PlayerState constants through react-youtube: YouTube.PlayerState contains the values that are used by the YouTube IFrame Player API.

Example

// js
import React from 'react';
import YouTube from 'react-youtube';

class Example extends React.Component {
  render() {
    const opts = {
      height: '390',
      width: '640',
      playerVars: {
        // https://developers.google.com/youtube/player_parameters
        autoplay: 1,
      },
    };

    return <YouTube videoId="2g811Eo7K8U" opts={opts} onReady={this._onReady} />;
  }

  _onReady(event) {
    // access to player in all event handlers via event.target
    event.target.pauseVideo();
  }
}
// ts
import React from 'react';
import YouTube, { YouTubeProps } from 'react-youtube';

function Example() {
  const onPlayerReady: YouTubeProps['onReady'] = (event) => {
    // access to player in all event handlers via event.target
    event.target.pauseVideo();
  }

  const opts: YouTubeProps['opts'] = {
    height: '390',
    width: '640',
    playerVars: {
      // https://developers.google.com/youtube/player_parameters
      autoplay: 1,
    },
  };

  return <YouTube videoId="2g811Eo7K8U" opts={opts} onReady={onPlayerReady} />;
}

Controlling the player

You can access & control the player in a way similar to the official api:

The API component will pass an event object as the sole argument to each of those functions the event handler props. The event object has the following properties:

  • The event's target identifies the video player that corresponds to the event.
  • The event's data specifies a value relevant to the event. Note that the onReady event does not specify a data property.
