In this second part we are going to set up the xml for all the the videos settings. We will change how our player loads videos and get preloaders working for all of our thumbnails.

Each part will build off the previous one until we have our final result. Our player will be able to use an XML file to populate three galleries with an unlimited amount of categories, and an unlimited amount of videos in each category.Read More…
