iOS - UIWebView not working due to parsing error


Use:

http://www.youtube.com/v/XXXXXXX

instead of:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XXXXXXX

Maybe my method for translating youtube URL to correct format will help you:

+ (NSString*)getYTUrlStr:(NSString*)url{       if (url == nil)        return nil;    NSString *retVal = [url stringByReplacingOccurrencesOfString:@"watch?v=" withString:@"v/"];    NSRange pos=[retVal rangeOfString:@"version"];    if(pos.location == NSNotFound)    {        retVal = [retVal stringByAppendingString:@"?version=3&hl=en_EN"];    }    return retVal;}


I solved it using the following HTML:

<!doctype html>\<html>\<style>body{padding:0;margin:0;}</style>\<iframe width=\"320\" height=\"367\" src=\"http://www.youtube.com/embed/rVd0XWALswk?rel=0\" frameborder=\"0\" allowfullscreen></iframe>\</html>

It has nothing to do with using short URL nor the YouTube URL. It's probably using the embed tag and using the type application/x-shockwave-flash. It's now working perfectly fine on iOS 6 GM.
