    Yeah, that looks way too easy. Did you end up using it for anything commercial, or was it too unstable (Client wanting to save money on bandwidth by having YouTube kindly host the sites flv content)

    Not at this point in time. I am in the same postion as yourself.

    I was asked if it was possible. Did some test's and told the client it was sort of possible and that was the last i herd.

    There seems to be no probelm if your using a html based site. There is code availble for that but nothing for flash.

    I guess there's nothing in it for youTube if they can't get their branding on the player. Maybe Joost is the one to watch.

    Thanks anyway

    There branding is on the movie being loaded in and the controls.
    Just seem to have a scaling issue

    Code:
    System.security.allowDomain("http://www.youtube.com");
    System.security.loadPolicyFile("http://www.youtube.com/crossdomain.xml");
    _root.createEmptyMovieClip("v_mc",_root.getNextHighestDepth());
    _root.v_mc.loadMovie("http://www.youtube.com/v/2inVnj-GygE");
    You have to download Policy Files and allow youtube as a domain

    would it work if you loaded a web page into the Flash page? and the web page has the code for the youtube video. I'm new to this so is there any way to load the web page into flash? That is one way that I thought of just can't figure out how to load the page in flash

    Yes, click the link in my signature... It cost me like fifty bucks but it was worth it. You know how on MySpace (i know you have one lol doesnt everyone?) you just copy the generated HTML codes for videos? Well this program converts AVI, WMV and others into Flash and generates the code so you just have to copy and paste it wherever you want...

    I'm heading into the area of YouTube clips and embeding them into a forum using the ones that I collect from a youtube group I formed. It's all a bit of a learning curve and working on it slowly!

    But for my home page I want to customize it with some YouTubes in flash. I'm having the same problem with the size and scale of the clips although this code scales it, it makes the player controls scale to small as well. So I have subscribed to this thread.

    This pretty much does the same as the above code I will also add that System.security to it, this below bit works OK.

    Code:
    clip_size =45;
    this.youtubeMC._xscale = this.youtubeMC._yscale = clip_size;
    this.clip_2._xscale = this.clip_2._yscale =clip_size;
    youtubeMC.loadMovie("http://www.youtube.com/v/aJtNZoj0-XI&autoplay=1");
    clip_2.loadMovie("http://www.youtube.com/v/OzQIaeMT8Dg");
    Embedding a clip into flash is only the beginning I want to be able to pull in other information from YouTube as well later such as feature clips and YouTube gallery from a group of channel etc. So it any bright sparks can come along and help with some advice in this thread that would be great.

    Anyone know why this will load different clips into the one MC when in test movie mode but when it uploads to the web it won't change the movie playing?

    youtube_1_btn.onPress = function() {
    youtubemc.loadMovie("http://www.youtube.com/v/OzQIaeMT8Dg");
    };
    youtube_2_btn.onPress = function() {
    youtubemc.loadMovie("http://www.youtube.com/v/aJtNZoj0-XI");
    };

    I thought i had it then discovered that youtube would change the random string therefore after a couple of hours the movie would no longer load and would have to got back to youtube and get a new link code.

    I gave up gracefully.

    This works!!! THANKS!

    Except for one thing:
    I'm loading the Youtube video inside a movie.
    Then, I have a button to close that movie and go back to a previous one, which is loading in the same spot at the one that had the youtube video in it.
    It works fine, except that, if I go back and the video is still playing, the sound keeps playing...then, if I load the movie with the youtube video again, it loads again and now I have two overlapping sound tracks playing! It's a mess! Help?
    Up the Irons!!

    I'm having a problem with Up Loading QT to U Tube with sound. I am using MP3's as the sound source in my Flash movies but when I convert them to QT I lose all the sound files. Does anyone know why QT is not taking them???

    Thanks!
