Youtube video

This page explains how to use afterglow to play a video hosted on Youtube.


All parameters on this page are optional

Playing Youtube videos is quite easy with afterglow. Instead of adding regular sources to your <video> element, just provide this player parameter:


When passing this parameter to the <video> element, afterglow will play the Youtube video which is associated with the id you provide. To get the id of a Youtube video, watch out for its url, you will find the id there.


If omitted, the player will look out for other sources to play.
