I am developing flutter app and using ext_video_player for play youtube video. When i was play my channel video on video player, its didn’t work. But i add any video from youtube, player is working. Why its happening?

import 'package:ext_video_player/ext_video_player.dart';

controller = VideoPlayerController.network(
    //example video
    'https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TdrL3QxjyVw'  
    //my video
    //'https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GoqggeA-ctA'
      )
    ..initialize().then((value) {
      controller.setLooping(true);
      controller.play();
      widget.sets.controller = controller;
      widget.onInitialized();
    });

Widget build(BuildContext context) => SizedBox(
    child: controller.value.initialized
        ? VideoPlayer(controller)
        : Center(child: CircularProgressIndicator()),
  );
  • working video ‘https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TdrL3QxjyVw’
  • my video (didn’t work) ‘https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GoqggeA-ctA’
