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

Supported Platforms: * Android * iOS

DEMO

Salient Features

  • Inline Playback
  • Supports captions
  • No need for API Key
  • Supports custom controls
  • Retrieves video meta data
  • Supports Live Stream videos
  • Supports changing playback rate
  • Support for both Android and iOS
  • Adapts to quality as per the bandwidth
  • Fast Forward and Rewind on horizontal drag
  • Fit Videos to wide screens with pinch gestures

The plugin uses flutter_inappwebview under-the-hood.

Since flutter_inappwebview relies on Flutter's mechanism for embedding Android and iOS views, this plugin might share some known issues tagged with the platform-views label.

Requirements

  • Android:
    minSdkVersion 17
    and add support for
    androidx
    (see AndroidX Migration)
  • iOS:
    --ios-language swift
    , Xcode version
    >= 11

Setup

iOS

Add these lines to

Info.plist
io.flutter.embedded_views_preview

For more info, see here

Android

Set

minSdkVersion
of your
android/app/build.gradle
file to at least 17.

For more info, see here

Note: Although the minimum to be set is 17, the player won't play on device with API < 20. For API < 20 devices, you might want to forward the video to be played using YouTube app instead, using packages like

url_launcher
or
android_intent
.

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); }, ),

For FullScreen Support

If fullscreen support is required, wrap your player with

YoutubePlayerBuilder
YoutubePlayerBuilder(
    player: YoutubePlayer(
        controller: _controller,
    ),
    builder: (context, player){
        return Column(
            children: [
                // some widgets
                player,
                //some other widgets
            ],
        );
    ),
),

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