$ flutter packages get

4. Using Youtube Player

/// LOWEST = 144p
/// LOW = 240p
/// MEDIUM = 360p
/// HIGH = 480p
/// HD = 720p
/// FHD = 1080p
/// "source" can be either youtube video ID or link.
    context: context,
    source: "nPt8bK2gbaU",
    quality: YoutubeQuality.HD,
    // callbackController is (optional). 
    // use it to control player on your own.
    callbackController: (controller) {
      _videoController = controller;

5. Playing livestream videos

Must set isLive property to true in order to play livestream videos.

    context: context,
    source: "ddFvjfvPnqk",
    quality: YoutubeQuality.HD,
    **isLive: true,**


In scenario, where one need to navigate to next page and return.
You’ll need to pause the video before navigating, otherwise the video will keep on playing.

    child: Text("Next Page"),
    onPressed: () {
               MaterialPageRoute(builder: (context) => NextPage()),

Didn’t like the controls ?

Don’t worry, Got a solution for you. 😉
Set the playermode to NO_CONTROLS, then you can create your own custom controls using the controller obtained from callbackController property.

    context: context,
    source: "ddFvjfvPnqk",
    playerMode: YoutubePlayerMode.NO_CONTROLS,
    callbackController: (controller) {
      _videoController = controller;
