#SharePoint You Tube web part now up on #codeplex #SP2010 #ps2010 #projectserver #MSProject
Although I don’t get to develop as much as I would like, I do occasionally spot a need and create a web part or two.
In this case my marketing department wants to put videos that are on our company You Tube channel on to our website.
Now to the techies of the world you may be thinking. This is easy, Content Editor Web Part, copy and paste the embed code and done. However, if the web site is being maintained by non-technical people, things can get into a muddle pretty quickly.
As a result of this I started to look at the You Tube iFrame Embed API and found all sorts of interesting options. So this web part provides access to most of the features found in the API. The most interesting of which is the playlist option with a comma separated list of Video ID’s.
Take a look at the video below:
Hopefully other people will find it useful also.
