Showing youtube video

Hi,
I want to build an functionality by which user will add the youtube
video link into my app. After that he/she should be able to see the
video in my application.
Like in facebook you can add the video link and that video will be shown
into facebook with the video's image and name.

Can anyone tell me how to do this?
Is there any plugin/gem avaliable for this?

Thanks,
Tushar

Hi Tushar,

Have to tried this:

<object width="480" height="385"><param name="movie" value="#{link you
want to show for e.g.
http://www.youtube.com/v/sM-wckCGIEE&hl=en_US&fs=1&}"></param><param
name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param
name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="#{link you
want to show for e.g.
http://www.youtube.com/v/sM-wckCGIEE&hl=en_US&fs=1&}"
type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always"
allowfullscreen="true" width="480" height="385"></embed></object>

Might Help.

Hi Tushar,

I have tried something like this:

if the youtube url is like
http://www.youtube.com/v/sM-wckCGIEE&hl=en_US&fs=1& then split the code
between v/ and &hl i.e try to fetch sM-wckCGIEE from above url
then paste it in http://i4.ytimg.com/vi/sM-wckCGIEE/default.jpg you will
get the thumb image.

No idea how to show time.

Regards

Saurabh
