Dear Community,

wanna play a Youtube Video in a B4J WebView:

B4X:
    Dim mywebview As WebView
    mywebview.Initialize("myww")
    MainForm.RootPane.AddNode(mywebview,100,100,500,800)
    mywebview.Visible=True

    mywebview.LoadHtml( _
    $"<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<body>
<iframe width="420" height="345" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/QVHhnDdjlfo">
</iframe>
</body>
</html>"$)
this gets the error: Video not available.... (first frame is visible for 0.5sec!)

same code in i.e. Firefox Browser works.

Any ideas?

Works fine. Tested with this code:
B4X:
Sub Process_Globals
   Private fx As JFX
   Private MainForm As Form
   Private WebView1 As WebView
End Sub

Sub AppStart (Form1 As Form, Args() As String)
   MainForm = Form1
   MainForm.RootPane.LoadLayout("1") 'Load the layout file.
   MainForm.Show
   WebView1.LoadUrl("https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vog7PmCPG5w")
End Sub

Thank you Erel.
You are right, but i want to do it with HTML to get more control about the "design" of the player.

this video-id is not working:
<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/QVHhnDdjlfo" frameborder="0"
allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>

this works:
<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/Iukmp8INeO8" frameborder="0"
allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Maybe it is because of "embeding" settings. But it should not.


Any possibility to get more control with the ...LoadUrl solution?
