New YouTube APIs Released!

March 12th, 2008 by enefekt

Issue 82 has finally been closed. We now have new YouTube APIs. What’s really cool is the new Player API, which includes:

  • Ability to control playback and access current state of media, and receive notification of important events.
  • API accessible from both JavaScript and Flash (ActionScript 2)
  • New chromeless player to implement your own controls and skin!

Authentication, uploading and internationalized feeds are also a part of this release!

Update: Watch the video in the announcement post, and you’ll see that Geoff Stearns (OG SWFObject guy) was one of the guys who worked on this. Congrats Geoff!

New YouTube Players from SWFObject Founder

February 25th, 2008 by enefekt

Geoff Stearns must be really busy, he’s just come up for some air to let us know how 2008 has been going. What fell out of that post as really cool news to me is that he’s working on virtually brand new YouTube video players. These have to rock, and I’m looking forward to them!

Wonder if they’re related to this YouTube Player GData issue on a player API? What, you haven’t seen that issue? Which means you haven’t voted for it, so go there, log-in with your gmail address, and vote for it!!

After logging in just click on the star in the upper left corner next to the issue number to vote for it.
