Embed YouTube video as Audio Player in Website

Written by August 10, 2017

How do you embed the audio portion of any YouTube video into your website? An easy option would be that you convert the YouTube video into an MP3 file and upload it to an audio hosting site like Soundcloud. This will work but YouTube is very likely to have a problem with your approach due to copyright issues

There’s a simpler approach as well that uses the official YouTube API and requires no file conversion.

You can embed any YouTube video in your web pages and visitors on your site will be able to play and pause the video audio with a simple click. With this technique, you can also use a YouTube video as background audio that runs in a loop.

Well i found many people with this issue that they want only audio in their website. So, for them i made this simple script with Youtube API that help you to embed your video with with only audio.

HOW TO EMBED YOUTUBE AUDIO

It takes just one step to embed a YouTube audio. Open any YouTube video and make a note of the YouTube Video ID you can get it from any youtube video URL (a string of 11 characters).

Next copy-paste the code below anywhere on your website and replace VIDEO_ID with actual ID of your YouTube video.

<div data-video="VIDEO_ID"
data-autoplay="0"
data-loop="1"
id="youtube-audio">
</div>
<script src="https://www.youtube.com/iframe_api"></script>
<script src="https://gist.github.com/sarmadgardezi/a0db67456d6849bf5697bcf290f5d84a.js"></script>

There are just few line of codes that you have to change it before using them in to your website. For instance, if you set data-autoplayto 1, the audio will begin playing immediately on page load. Likewise, set data-loop to 1 and the audio will play continuously in a never-ending loop until manually stopped.

See the Demo of project. The JavaScript files are hosted on Github while the images are hosted on Developers PK. It is recommended that you copy the assets to your own server before deploying on a heavy-traffic website.

YOUTUBE AUDIO – THE TECHNICAL DETAILS

We are using the YouTube JavaScript API that renders a regular YouTube player but with the width and height set to 0 pixels. When the user clicks the audio button, it toggles the existing YouTube player state and the video begins to play or pauses.

Don’t you think its easy way to embed any song from youtube in to your website so that people can listen is easily.
