A UIView subclass that displays YouTube videos using a MPMoviePlayerController.

LBYouTubeView

About

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.

Usage

LBYouTubeView is dead simple. Just add an instance as a subview to a UIViewControllers view and tell it, what video it should load.

Installation

  1. Drag the LBYouTubeView folder into your project.
  2. Import the MediaPlayer.framework.
  3. If you need to support iOS 4, add JSONKit to your project and set -fno-objc-arc compiler flag to JSONKit.m.

Example

LBYouTubePlayerViewController* controller = [[LBYouTubePlayerViewController alloc] initWithYouTubeURL:[NSURL URLWithString:@"http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1fTIhC1WSew&list=FLEYfH4kbq85W_CiOTuSjf8w&feature=mh_lolz"] quality:LBYouTubeVideoQualityLarge];
controller.delegate = self;
controller.view.frame = CGRectMake(0.0f, 0.0f, 200.0f, 200.0f);
controller.view.center = self.view.center;
[self.view addSubview:self.controller.view];

You can also only extract video URL without to use LBYouTubePlayerViewController directly:

LBYouTubeExtractor* extractor = [[LBYouTubeExtractor alloc] initWithURL:URL quality:quality];
extractor.delegate = self;
[extractor startExtracting];

Requirements

LBYouTubeView requires iOS 4. Also, it is deployed for an ARC environment.
