    Google launching YouTube API for Android app developers - FierceMobileContent (click for full article)

    "Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) plans to roll out a new YouTube Android Player API, enabling developers to integrate native video viewing experiences directly into their Android applications.

    Android Central reports the YouTube API will support Android applications optimized for smartphones and tablets as well as the Google TV platform. The basic API code runs just three lines long and provides automatic support for fullscreen and orientation change, additionally adjusting the quality of the video stream based upon the strength of the network connection. The API also will support mobile advertising and monetization options."

    YouTube is now the largest source of mobile data traffic across all international markets, accounting for more than 25 percent of total network data in some regions. This new development is a very good news for many android users.

    At present, integrating YouTube video content in third-party Android apps requires either a browser plugin or Flash-based embedded client. Some apps rely on an iFrame-based embedded webview, which offers access to the player APIs but is not supported on many older Android devices. Developers also can include instructions to open content in Google's dedicated YouTube app, although that approach does not guarantee consumers will return to the previous app once a video clip ends.......Find more info here
