Android :: How To Get YouTube Videos To Show Up & Play In Android Apps?
Aug 18, 2010
Our Android app loads RSS feeds for news and blog sites and displays the stories in a webview.Whenever a story has a YouTube video, the video doesn't show up and it doesn't play (the object is there, but it's just whitespace & nothing happens when you tap it)Surely, since Google owns both Android and YouTube there's simple way to allow YouTube videos to play in a webview within Android Apps? (They work great in our iPhone app).
when accessing a website with embedded YouTube video from within the browser, I can play the video. When accessing it from WebView I haven't been able to do that. Is that not possible or is there anything I do wrong? WebView webView = (WebView) findViewById(R.id.content_web_view);
I am glad flash is on the Evo but when i go to the mobile site of you tube I would much rather get the better quality through the You Tube app than the mobile htc flash player. Anyway to make it so when I get a link on face book app it wont show on the mobile htc flash player than through you tube app?
I noticed that when I search for music videos on youtube, the official videos(which on the PC site of the youtube site are highlighted) don't search up on searches in the youtube app. Instead I'm left with a bunch of stupid fan made videos that are completely not what I'm looking for.
I've uploaded videos from my phone to youtube before most recently the past couple of weeks. I go to upload one right now and it looks normal connected to my account and everything. It says complete when its finished, but when I go to youtube the video isn't there. Tried it about 5 times and same thing every time.
Am i the only one who cant watch the music videos on youtube? when i search for them on my htc, they don't come up within the search results, but when i click the link in my htc browser i can watch them. how can i make the youtube application show the videos i search for? and i am logged in to youtube as well
I just got the gsm hero. on a site that has embedded you tube videos, how do I play them in the you tube app? otherwise, it plays the video in the htc flash player and the video is jumpy and bad looking. BTW, menu>more>watch in HQ only shows up if your watching videos in the you tube app, it doesn't show up in the htc flash player.
I had found an issue on my HTC Desire. When i try to play some videos on Youtube app, connected through 3G or Wifi, it plays till some point and then a message occures: Sorry this video cannot be played bla bla and stops. No problem on same wifi network but with iPhone 3G.
Iv`e managed to download a couple of you tube videos onto my samsung galaxy phone, but some of the videos won`t play, I just get a message saying " can`t play this video". why is this, & is there any way that i can get my phone to play all the videos that I download onto it?
I was trying to find a video on YouTube on my Droid that I could easily find on my computer, but I could not get the video to come up in the YouTube search using my Droid. I tried this in the YouTube app and the browser, but I got the same results. For this particular search, my Droid came up with 4 results, and my computer 20 results. I've also done google searches for particular videos, only to get a "video not compatible with YouTube mobile" (or something like that). Are these 2 issues related? Is my search on my Droid only finding mobile-compatible videos?
Ever since updating to Froyo, my DX won't play any Youtube videos, it just says "Sorry this video cannot be played" and below that, "There was an error trying to play video". Is anyone else having this issue, or does anyone know how to fix it?
I have had the droid x for a little over a week, my last phone was the eris. I have yet to be able to play any youtube videos on my phone, whether it be from the youtube widget, a browser window, or a facebook link. It just goes to loading video, and it never loads. Has anyone else had this problem?? I have tried it both with and without using wifi.
I figure maybe it's a Flash problem, but I can't seem to play ANY YouTube videos on my Eris. The error I always get is something about the video not being found. This is a new Eris, got it about 2 weeks ago so I am assuming it's got the most current ROM. Does anyone know how I can get YouTube to work while on the cellular network and not WiFi?
For instance: when I click on a video on cnn.com, the phone goes through the motions of downloading it and then I get a message: This content cannot play on this device.
When I go to the YouTube app and click on any video displayed, the message is Cannot play video. Sorry, this video cannot be played. The videos that I took with my phone and are stored on my SD are playing OK.

I've got a problem with my play store. I have Samsung galaxy S3 and the problem is that my play store doesn't show me most of apps, I can't even find angry birds. It doesn't show me apps to buy for money. Nothing. Also there are apps which I can't download because it says 'This item is not available in your country'
I used my friend's email to log into play store and the problem's gone. Everything work fine. I created a new email account but it still doesn't work I can only fully use play store using his email.
I just have purchased a Nexus 7. I went to the google play website and I used to be able to see all my devices individually and see what apps were installed on each device and all the apps in my library. It made it easy to add apps to a new device. Now I just see all the apps installed but not broken down by device, so I have to click on each individual app to see on which device they are installed. It is a more convoluted process, and I would like to see on the website at a glance which apps are installed on each device I own. Did something change or something I am missing? I also can't log in do the device manager with Chrome but I can with Safari. Mac OS X10.8, Android 4.1
I am writing an application to play the you tube videos using streaming. First method: I am getting the RTSP URL to the video using GData APIs. Here is the code to play the RTSP url. VideoView mVideoView = new VideoView(this); setContentView(mVideoView); mVideoView.setVideoURI(Uri.parse("rtsp://rtsp2.youtube.com/CiILENy73wIaGQkDwpjrUxOWQBMYESARFEgGUgZ2aWRlb3MM/0/0/0/video.3gp")); mVideoView.start(); But it throws error on both G1 device and emulator (Emulator has some firewall problem as per mailing list) Here is the error message ERROR/PlayerDriver(35): Command PLAYER_INIT completed with an error or info PVMFFailure, Second method: A hack way to get the path of 3gp file from http://www.youtube.com/get_video?v=<VideoID>&t=<>&<>.. After getting the file path and I can call setVideoURI and it plays fine. But it is a hack way to achieve the requirement. I have checked the Youtube App also, it also does the hack way to play the you tube url.(Checked with logcat). I have tried changing from VideoView to Media Player but no change in the error. Is there a "Clean" way to do this?
I just bought my first android phone. Everything works tip top, however there's zero audio for youtube videos and also for that other program. I forget the name, GoTv is something. Anyway, no audio with either. What's going on? I've looked through settings and even through my little instruction book and there's nothing on having to turn on the sound.
I want to playback youtube videos on android. I came to know (from the below mentioned link) that adobe demostrated flash player for android, but they haven't released the code yet. Is there an alternative way to playback youtube video's on android? Is there an application that supports flash content playback on android already (though I couldn't find any on "android market" or related sites) or any development work is underway?
I am trying to stream videos from you tube on my emulator. As per the you tube data api documentation I only see rtsp support from youtube.When I try to use the rtsp url in Media Player, I get an error in prepare() method and the video does not play. Going through the API demos media example I came to know that emulator supports only http based progressive download. I want to know whether I can stream youtube videos using http on my android emulator. Is there any licensed youtube APIs which developers can use?
So, after a video is uploaded to youtube. I'm looking for a way to access its uploaded youtube id. My best idea is that this information might be stored in some content provider somewhere. Anyone have an idea?
