Hi all

Im having a struggle here. I know very basic Jquery, and are reading up on on the YouTube API, but I cant seem to find how to do this. I downloaded a script for a custom YouTube player, and everything is good. I modified it to my needs.

The problem is, I want to make a callback when the video has ended but I dont know how to call it in. I want to write a script that redirects me to the next video when the current one has ended.

Heres the code for the custom player:

(function ($) {
    $.fn.customYtPlayer = function (options) {

        var youtubeAPI = "http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api/videos?v=2&alt=jsonc";
        var settings = {};

        // Default values
        options = $.extend({
            width: '100%',
            onPlay: null,
            onPause: null,
            onEnd: null,
            onUnstarted: null
        },
        options);

        // Format Timer (hh:mm:ss)
        function formatTime (second, hour, minute) {
            if (second > 3600) {
                var ore = Math.floor(second / 3600);
                if(ore < 10) ore = "0" + ore;
                var rest = Math.ceil(second % 3600);
                var format = formatTime (rest, ore);
            } else if (second > 60) {
                var minuti = Math.floor(second / 60);
                if(minuti < 10) minuti = "0" + minuti;
                var rest = Math.ceil(second % 60);
                var format = formatTime (rest, ore, minuti);
            } else if (second < 60) {
                if (!hour) hour = "00";
                if (!minute) minute = "00";
                if (!second) {
                    second = "00";
                } else {
                    second = Math.round(second);
                    if (second < 10) {
                        second = "0" + second;
                    }
                }
                var format = hour + ":" + minute + ":" + second;
            }
            return format;
        };

        // Video ID Extractor
        function youtubeIDextract (url) { 
            var youtube_id; 
            youtube_id = url.replace(/^[^v]+v.(.{11}).*/, "$1"); 
            return youtube_id;

                        }
                    }

                },"jsonp");

                lastDate = curDate;

            });
        }
    };
})(jQuery);

I was thinking something like this to test it out, but it alerts "done" on start.

    <script type="text/javascript">
        $(document).ready(function(){
            $('.youtube').customYtPlayer({ onEnd: alert('done') });
        });
    </script>

Anyone can help me?

The problem is, I want to make a callback when the video has ended but I dont know how to call it in. I want to write a script that redirects me to the next video when the current one has ended.

@brianjoe

What code did you add on? You mention you modify it? Did it work before you modify it?

No I havent modified the actual javascript code, what I ment was that I modified it for my needs CSS wise and implementation wise on my site.

What I have done so far is styling the player and make it open in a popup. So my problem is when the current video ends I need to get the next ID from my database and then tell this script to play this video that has this ID.

I dont know if Im expressing myself well enough.

Why did you post this in javascript section?

If the issue is with CSS and how it will appear on your website, why post that you have issue with the script itself?
