iOS 8 youtube video embed

I’m facing problems that I can’t seem to understand.

I have this code that works perfectly in Xcode 5 with iOS 7:

  • Issue with not getting sound in device when play youtube video in UIWebView in IOS
  • How to prevent a youtube iframe to redirect from Standalone App to Youtube App?
  • Play a video from Youtube in a AVPlayerViewController in Swift
  • playing youtube video inside uiwebview. How to handle the “done” button?
  • Using YTPlayerView to play embedded YouTube video in iOS failed with restriction error
  • iOS open YouTube App with query (url schemes)
  • - (void)viewDidLoad {
      [super viewDidLoad];
      // Do any additional setup after loading the view, typically from a nib.
      CGFloat width = self.view.frame.size.width;
      CGFloat height = self.view.frame.size.height;
      UIWebView *webview = [[UIWebView alloc] initWithFrame:CGRectMake(0, 0, width, height)];
      NSString* embedHTML = @"\
      <html><head><meta name=\"viewport\" content=\"width=device-width; initial-scale=1.0; user-scalable=0;\"/>\
      <style type=\"text/css\">\
        body {\
        background-color: transparent;\
       color: black;\
      }\
      </style>\
      </head><body style=\"margin:0;\">\
      <embed id=\"yt\" src=\"https://www.youtube.com/v/M7lc1UVf-VE?hd=1\" type=\"application/x-shockwave-flash\" \
      width=\"%0.0f\" height=\"%0.0f\"></embed>\
      </body></html>";
      NSString *html = [NSString stringWithFormat:embedHTML, width, height];
      [webview loadHTMLString:html baseURL:nil];
      [self.view addSubview:webview];
    }
    

    When I build the same code in Xcode 6 for iOS 8 then the video displays in the webview but is way to small.

    Can anybody explain what’s happening here and how I could overcome this?

    I had the same problem, I solve using this solution

    https://developers.google.com/youtube/v3/guides/ios_youtube_helper

    also in the YTPlayerView.m (~line: 610) try this changes:

    [playerParams setValue:[NSString stringWithFormat: @"%0.00f", self.frame.size.height] forKey:@"height"];
    // [playerParams setValue:@"100%" forKey:@"height"];
    [playerParams setValue:[NSString stringWithFormat: @"%0.00f", self.frame.size.width] forKey:@"width"];
    // [playerParams setValue:@"100%" forKey:@"width"];
    

    Hope this help

    I worked on this for a while and figured out a solution that works amazingly for my purposes. What was happening in my case is for some reason the iFrame was using some padding that needed to be discarded.

    Also important to note is if you include youtube.com as the Base URL it will load much quicker.

    Make a UIWebView in your storyboard and connect the @property to it, then reference below.

        CGFloat height = self.webView.frame.size.height;
        CGFloat width = self.webView.frame.size.width;
        NSString *youTubeVideoCode = @"dQw4w9WgXcQ";
        NSString *embedHTML = @"<iframe width=\"%f\" height=\"%f\" src=\"http://www.youtube.com/embed/%@\" frameborder=\"0\" style=\"margin:-8px;padding:0;\" allowfullscreen></iframe>";
        NSString *html = [NSString stringWithFormat:embedHTML, width, height, youTubeVideoCode];
        self.webView.scrollView.bounces = NO;
        [self.webView loadHTMLString:html baseURL:[NSURL URLWithString:@"http://www.youtube.com"]];
