Why YouTube Player API does not work on Android 11

0 votes

When I tried to play YouTube videos on Android 9 and Android 10 devices, they played just fine. However, when I opened the YouTube video window on an Android 11 smartphone, I saw the following message:

"An error occurred while initializing the YouTube player".

This is the code of MainActivity.java:

package com.example.youtube;

import android.os.Bundle;

import com.google.android.material.floatingactionbutton.FloatingActionButton;
import com.google.android.material.snackbar.Snackbar;
import com.google.android.youtube.player.YouTubeBaseActivity;
import com.google.android.youtube.player.YouTubeInitializationResult;
import com.google.android.youtube.player.YouTubePlayer;
import com.google.android.youtube.player.YouTubePlayerView;

import androidx.appcompat.app.AppCompatActivity;
import androidx.appcompat.widget.Toolbar;

import android.view.View;
import android.view.Menu;
import android.view.MenuItem;
import android.widget.Button;

import android.widget.Toast;

public class MainActivity extends YouTubeBaseActivity {

    Button play_btn;
    YouTubePlayerView youtubePlayerView;
    YouTubePlayer.OnInitializedListener onInitializedListener;

    private static final int RECOVERY_DIALOG_REQUEST = 1;

    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
        youtubePlayerView = findViewById(R.id.youtubeView);
        play_btn = findViewById(R.id.playvideo_btn);

        final android.app.Activity myActivity = this;

        onInitializedListener =new YouTubePlayer.OnInitializedListener() {
            @Override
            public void onInitializationSuccess(YouTubePlayer.Provider provider, YouTubePlayer youTubePlayer, boolean b) {
                youTubePlayer.loadVideo("Up9BjrIuoXY");
            }

            @Override
            public void onInitializationFailure(YouTubePlayer.Provider provider, YouTubeInitializationResult youTubeInitializationResult) {
                if (youTubeInitializationResult.isUserRecoverableError()) {
                    youTubeInitializationResult.getErrorDialog(myActivity, RECOVERY_DIALOG_REQUEST).show();
                } else {
                    String errorMessage = String.format(
                            getString(R.string.error_player), youTubeInitializationResult.toString());
                    Toast.makeText(myActivity, errorMessage, Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
                }
            }
        };

        play_btn.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
            @Override
            public void onClick(View v) {
                youtubePlayerView.initialize("AIzaSyZ2", onInitializedListener);
            }
        });

    }
}

The YouTube app for Android 11 devices is updated.

Hope somebody could help me. Thanks!

The Android 11 package visibility limitations prevent the SDK from finding the Youtube service unless you include a reference to it in.
