With the YouTube API recently released, there’s bound to be lots of cool controls coming out soon. Thorsten Suckow-Homberg spent a weekend hacking up a Ext-based user extension that leverages YouTube’s chromeless API to build The Ext.ux.YoutubePlayer.
The Ext.ux.YoutubePlayer allows developers to embed youtube videos into Ext applications, using native Ext components for controlling the video playback. Itâ€™ll show the buffer status and letâ€™s you jump to any part in the video using a slider component.
Cool features include:
- Showing the buffer status
- Playback slider that let’s you jump to any position in the video playback
- Mute/unmute the video
- Overall volume control
I whipped up a demo for all to see.
