  • Hello.

    You can use WebView control for play youtube videos in your app. Or use "MyToolkit" for parse link and play it via MediaElement.

  • Hello Santosh,

    webview is not support Iframe. Because Webview doesn't support flash, silverlight, active-x. Show this link:

  • Try this

    protected override void OnNavigatedTo(NavigationEventArgs e)
        //Original video URL http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VQb5caeSo00
        OpenYouTubeVideo("400", "400", "VQb5caeSo00");
    private void OpenYouTubeVideo(string VideoWidth, string VideoHeight, string VideoID)
        webView.NavigateToString(string.Format("<iframe width='{0}' height='{1}' src='http://www.youtube.com/embed/{2}' frameborder='0'></iframe>", VideoWidth, VideoHeight, VideoID));
