Youtube Hosted videos on Cordova

 Good Day, I am Working with your cordova SDK  and evaluating it before purchasing it.
At the moment i wasn't able to Start a youtube video with Wikitude.

I used an h264 encoded video and even with that i could not make it start.


Hi Emil,


Videos hosted on YouTube can not be used directly due to license restrictions. If you have access to the source video file, encode it into a H.264 video file, upload it to your server and you are good to go.


Thanks

Hi Emil,


In our documentation we state "Keep in mind that URLs from video hosting services need to point directly to the H.264 encoded video file. Standard YouTube and Vimeo URLs (like http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bX98XNv8VL4) will not work for this purpose."


Based on your comment, you have already done it but it still does not work. Did you try to put the video with our sample app and see if it works there?


Thanks

Eva

Thanks for the reply Eva,
Yes i did and it worked fine doing so, but when i'm tring to use it while hosted on youtube the video player does not start even if in the inspector there aren't errors of any kind.

 

Hi Emil,


As I stated in my post above, if you are trying to put a direct Youtube link then it will not work. You always need to encode the video to the H.264 file.


Thanks

Eva

Ok, so i have the video encoded in h264 uploaded on youtube on this address https://youtu.be/HrXK5olWH7A, how can i get directly to the h264 version? Am i missing something?
