Flutter plugin for playing or streaming YouTube videos inline using the official iFrame Player API.

Supported Platforms:

  • Android
  • iOS

DEMO

The plugin uses webview_flutter under-the-hood to play videos.

Since webview_flutter relies on Flutter’s new mechanism for embedding Android and iOS views, this plugin might share some known issues tagged with the platform-views and/or webview labels.

Setup

iOS

Opt-in to the embedded views preview by adding a boolean property to the app’s Info.plist file with the key io.flutter.embedded_views_preview and the value YES.

Android

No configuration required - the plugin should work out of the box.

Using Youtube Player

YoutubePlayerController _controller = YoutubePlayerController(
    initialVideoId: 'iLnmTe5Q2Qw',
    flags: YoutubePlayerFlags(
        autoPlay: true,
        mute: true,
    ),
);

YoutubePlayer(
    controller: _controller,
    showVideoProgressIndicator: true,
    videoProgressIndicatorColor: Colors.amber,
    progressColors: ProgressColors(
        playedColor: Colors.amber,
        handleColor: Colors.amberAccent,
    ),
    onReady () {
        _controller.addListener(listener);
    },
),

Playing live stream videos

Set the isLive property to true in order to change the UI to match Live Video.

Live UI Demo

YoutubePlayerController _controller = YoutubePlayerController(
    initialVideoId: 'iLnmTe5Q2Qw',
    flags: YoutubePLayerFlags(
      isLive: true,
    ),
);

YoutubePlayer(
    controller: _controller,
    liveUIColor: Colors.amber,
),

Want to customize the player?

With v5.x.x and up, use the topActions and bottomActions properties to customize the player.

Some of the widgets bundled with the plugin are:

  • FullScreenButton
  • RemainingDuration
  • CurrentPosition
  • PlayPauseButton
  • PlaybackSpeedButton
  • ProgressBar
YoutubePlayer(
    controller: _controller,
    bottomActions: [
      CurrentPosition(),
      ProgressBar(isExpanded: true),
      TotalDuration(),
    ],
),

Want to play using Youtube URLs ?

The plugin also provides convertUrlToId() method that converts youtube links to its corresponding video ids.

String videoId;
videoId = YoutubePlayer.convertUrlToId("https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BBAyRBTfsOU");
print(videoId); // BBAyRBTfsOU

Limitation

Since the plugin is based on platform views. This plugin requires Android API level 20 or greater.

If you only want to target Android and need support for Android Kitkat or less, then you can use youtube_player.
