I am having trouble getting this example to work. I posted exactly like it is put on the google documentation but it just won't work for some reason. Some please help me, am I doing something wrong. The link to the documentation is https://developers.google.com/youtube/iframe_api_reference#Getting_Started

The code I am using is

    <!-- 1. The <iframe> (and video player) will replace this <div> tag. -->
    <div id="player"></div>

      // 2. This code loads the IFrame Player API code asynchronously.
      var tag = document.createElement('script');
      tag.src = "//www.youtube.com/iframe_api";
      var firstScriptTag = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0];
      firstScriptTag.parentNode.insertBefore(tag, firstScriptTag);

      // 3. This function creates an <iframe> (and YouTube player)
      //    after the API code downloads.
      var player;
      function onYouTubeIframeAPIReady() {
        player = new YT.Player('player', {
          height: '390',
          width: '640',
          videoId: 'u1zgFlCw8Aw',
          events: {
            'onReady': onPlayerReady,
            'onStateChange': onPlayerStateChange

      // 4. The API will call this function when the video player is ready.
      function onPlayerReady(event) {

      // 5. The API calls this function when the player's state changes.
      //    The function indicates that when playing a video (state=1),
      //    the player should play for six seconds and then stop.
      var done = false;
      function onPlayerStateChange(event) {
        if (event.data == YT.PlayerState.PLAYING && !done) {
          setTimeout(stopVideo, 6000);
          done = true;
      function stopVideo() {
