January 22, 2015

This update contains the following changes:

  • The YouTube Android Player API JAR file available for download has been updated to version 1.2.1. The API reference documentation has also been updated to reflect the new version, which includes the following changes:

    • The YouTubeIntents class supports a new public method, canResolvePlayVideoIntentWithOptions. This method determines whether the YouTube application installed on the user's device supports the fullscreen and finishOnEnd optional parameters, which can be set when creating a play video Intent.

    • In the YouTubePlayer.ErrorReason enum, the new PLAYER_VIEW_NOT_VISIBLE value indicates that video playback has been stopped because the player's View is not visible.

    • In the YouTubePlayer.ErrorReason enum, the BLOCKED_FOR_APP and EMBEDDING_DISABLED values have both been deprecated. Use the NOT_PLAYABLE value instead.

    • The YouTubeStandalonePlayer class supports two new createVideosIntent public methods, which accept different arguments. Each method creates an intent that starts a new standalone player activity that plays a list of videos.

    • The YouTubeThumbnailLoader interface's documentation has been updated to note that you must call the interface's release() method when you are finished with the YouTubeThumbnailLoader. The documentation for the YouTubeThumbnailView class also mentions this requirement.
