LBYouTubeView is just a small view that is able to display YouTube videos in a
MPMoviePlayerController. You even have the choice between high-quality and standard quality stream.
How does it work? It just loads the HTML code of YouTube’s mobile website and looks for the data in the script tag. LBYouTubeView doesn’t use
UIWebView which makes it faster and look cleaner.
LBYouTubeView is dead simple. Just add an instance as a subview to a UIViewControllers view and tell it, what video it should load.
