HTML5 player YouTube support?
We love the JWPlayer and use it on all our client projects to deliver video, so well done, its a great product. We were excited to read about the HTML5 player, especially as a lot of our clients are looking at support for the Apple devices now, and so we've been playing around with it recently in an effort to "port" a site over to be iPhone 'friendly'.
Getting to it....We fully realise that its in 'Beta', but the one thing we did notice, was that it doesn't seem to support externally hosted video playback (i.e. Youtube) directly like the Flash based player. (or am I wrong?) This feature is a really powerful asset for us on the Flash player, as it means we can build CMS screens which allow the client the freedom to use both locally hosted and/or externally hosted video interchangeably. Naturally now however, the systems we've put in place for this won't support these links on the HTML5 player.
Is there a configuration I'm missing perhaps? Maybe an addon or API call to enable this? (Or is it just not possible?) Be interested to know if this is in the pipeline, so if anyone has any feedback let me know :)
Thanks and good work
