Build a music player with YouTube IFrame Player API

Build a music player with YouTube IFrame Player API

I added a musicplayer based on YouTube IFrame Player API for my personal site music page to play my playlist from YTmusic.



Stack

  • React as a framework
  • YouTube Data API v3 (fetching music list from youtube)
  • react-youtube Youtube iframe player for react



react-youtube

Installation

Add player config.

import YouTube from 'react-youtube';
const opts = {
  height: "250",
  width: "350",
  playerVars: {
    autoplay: 1,
  },
};
Enter fullscreen mode

Exit fullscreen mode

Add player from react-youtube.

<YouTube
  videoId={"UEx5T0xfUk1td3F5ZFJ0elRhVHV6SGM3R0NYbEFSMmFPOC5EMEEwRUY5M0RDRTU3NDJC"} //Video id from youtube
  opts={opts}
/>;

Enter fullscreen mode

Exit fullscreen mode

Create a control player event value

let videoElement: YouTubePlayer = null
Enter fullscreen mode

Exit fullscreen mode

Player event control like:pauseVideo(), playVideo()\
Example of video play button:

<button onClick={()=>videoElement.target.playVideo()}>
     Play Video
</button>
Enter fullscreen mode

Exit fullscreen mode



PlayList

Create a API token on google api console, search and add YouTube Data API v3.

import React from 'react';
const [loading, setLoading] = React.useState(true);
const [playList ,setPlaylist] = React.useState(null);
React.useEffect(() => {
  setLoading(true);
  fetch(
    "https://www.googleapis.com/youtube/v3/playlistItems?part=snippet&playlistId=PLyOL_RMmwqydRtzTaTuzHc7GCXlAR2aO8&key=<your_api_token>&maxResults=1000",
    {}
  )
    .then((res) => res.json())
    .then((data) => {
      setPlaylist(data.items);
      setLoading(false);
    });
}, []);
return (
  <ul>
    {loading || !playList ? (
      <h1>Loading...</h1>
    ) : (
      playList.map((items) => <li key={items.id}>{items.snippet.title}</li>)
    )}
  </ul>
);
Enter fullscreen mode

Exit fullscreen mode
