    Default Is there any way to make a youtube style player?

    Is there any software or open source that allows you to make your own custom video player like the youtube player, google video player, etc?

    Yes, but it would be a large project.

    i'd suggest searching google for some options.

    You might need to pay something for a player for your site, though.

    To answer the topic related question, yes Flash can do it. BUT like djr said.. I would suggest finding a premade version through google and going with that.

    To do it in Flash you are looking at about 10 different application files and an AS file with well over 100,000 lines of code...

    That sounds like a lot of fun.

    Also, if you feel the need, you could include your version of program to play your new format of video on a desktop, and create your own file format.

    Google is insane. But they're great.

    Actually you could do the flash actionscript with less than 250 lines of code
    i managed to do it with 198.
    Anyway, its not as complicated as everyone makes it sound.
    But if you are looking for a quick little thing you can use i suggest

    Yes, and using AS3.0 I could write a working version with about 120 lines.

    HOWEVER, it won't be secure, prevent auto downloads or linking, and on and on.

    Default youtube script

    I found this a while back. Seems pretty high but looks like they stand behind it

    I really don't trust them. They're using copyrighted names ("you tube") which is just stupid, and they're using the logos for iMovie, iTunes and Preview (mac default image viewer), respectively. Not a reliable company.

    I second that. I get the feeling of the "we only need one" syndrome. Where they charge you a monthly base to cover their dedicated server costs, and then a "one time" set up to cover their beer money.

    I would step away from them as well. For that money you can get your own dedicated server and do it yourself. Probably for better, and cheaper in the long run.

    Nope, i use AS 2, and it is secure (Not the ones on programmer 2, those are just demos).
    Trick is to make it object oriented.
