Yahoo! WebPlayer provides an extremely easy way for website owners and publishers to add audio and video to their Web pages. All one has to do is add one line of code (seen below) to their page and link to a media file or mention a recognized term in the post.
When the page loads, the player scans its contents and adds a play button next to each playable item. When clicked, an in-page player opens up and start playing all multimedia content on that page as a unified playlist.
With Yahoo WebPlayer, it would no longer be required to clutter up your page with embedded players or copy over giant embed code from YouTube. You can just add a link to the YouTube video on the page and that will do. Basically, this application makes embedded content look fancier on a website. So it’s not really a YouTube competitor as YouTube is one of the sources for content.
WebPlayer is still in beta mode, so there might be some quirks and incompatibility issues. You can view samples, instructions to set up and customize Yahoo WebPlayer at the below link.
