|Open YouTube Activity project launched by Keyes Labs|
Since posting a simple blog article in the fall of 2009 about how to render YouTube videos in an Android application, I've gotten a steady stream of developers downloading and using the Activity.

My hope is that this will allow those that are interested to fix bugs and continue to evolve the software as a community.There is decent support in Android for media, including video.

Feel free to use the component however you wish (it's licensed under Apache 2.0). Please send patches or updates so that everyone can benefit! If you want to be a contributor, just let me know...
