Playing YouTube Videos on Raspberry Pi 2 Using POT and QtWebKit
This is the first attempt at playing YouTube videos using POT and QtWebKit on Raspberry Pi 2 (Raspbian Jessie). I tried two ways: one is from the YouTube website and one is using the iframe YouTube API. What you’ll see in the video is done using the old WebKit 1 in QtWebKit with the OpenGL paint engine. This is good if you need to place a YouTube video in your application. Unfortunately this is still very experimental and cannot be placed in QML applications. Much more work is needed for that.
Unfortunately what you’ll see in the demo is just HD quality (720p). YouTube doesn’t seem to be willing to let my Pi have the 1080p version for some reason.
Have fun! 😉
