TubeLoc: An AS3 Player Wrapper Using LocalConnection

Posted by Jeff Fisher, YouTube APIs and Tools Team

We know developers really like AS3, but sometimes they have difficulty getting our players to work correctly. To make this process easier for the Flashy/Flexy crowd, the awesome Ben Longoria has given us TubeLoc.

TubeLoc is an AS3 wrapper around the Player API that uses LocalConnection to communicate to the AS2 YouTube SWFs. It takes this a step further by also providing Flex components to make inserting a YouTube video and controls easy.

Ready to get started? First read the article that goes in depth on how to use TubeLoc. Next, visit the project page to download the code and play with the live demos. Finally, tell us what you think on the forum. Thanks Ben
