Very cool. Let us know if you plan to publish the source.
if all work is complete, I will publish youtube plugin.
could you share your approach on this?
are you extending the mediafactory, adding a new loader type for http protocol and youtube api specifics?
if so, do you know the api to load and start the stream? right now, if you use the youtube player, it's all hidden inside the player and the player responds to a cue button click by putting together the URLRequest (prefix plus video id, set the version and format request variables). Then uses a flex URLLoader to get the data feed with some config data.
But what magic happens following the response when the player calls the player internal cueVideoById() method with the id? It must open a NetConnection and NetStream but is there any way to reference these?
I'd be intersted in finding out how you're handling this
