Cheers, it was quite interesting to have a look into the Youtube iframe API. Pretty usable actually. One quick tip because I also came across it… make sure this function does not have another wrapping function around it or else it will not fire:

function onYouTubeIframeAPIReady() {


It’s a bit of a dirty approach by them that this has to be kept global…

As one can see, I also added a check so it will only reinsert the player when the video ends in fullscreen.


Edit – I might create a version that takes care of the above mentioned issue. Seeing some good clues on SO to limit the scope of things (it’s all global now)…

That went quicker than I thought. Now it has a nice document ready wrapper around it and can be used anywhere on the page without issues. The only global function is onYouTubeIframeAPIReady.

A looksie for those that are interested
