YouTube Shows Off API With ActionScript 3 Demo

YouTube API demoEmbedding videos played a huge role in YouTube’s success. These days you can programmatically embed a video in both a web page and your own Flash application. YouTube released its player API back in March, but was missing examples for Flash developers.

YouTube created a great proof-of-concept demo for its player API and open sourced the code.

The example also includes the JavaScript API, for an all-in-one demo. For more information on the JavaScript version, read our YouTube API tutorial, which shows how to embed and control the chromeless player in your page with JavaScript.
