    so how could you make all videos work? and can you make the box automatically put the https://www.youtube.com/watch?v= appear so we dont need to type that everytime, rather i'd put the 11 character code for a specific video

    Hey, thanks for the feedback everyone!

    Yeah, I noticed that. It's rather interesting, I guess the browser just caches the video on that page for some reason. The easy fix is simply clicking the title of the page at the top, and reloading it.

    Yeah, to be honest I might work on that right now. Instead of loading the direct link, it'll load the https://www.youtube.com/embed/x page in an iframe, which will work with all videos. I just used this version because it was much easier and I was just testing it to start with.

    And yeah, I'll make it so you don't even have to type the full link in, just the 11 character code. Sorry about that, I just didn't bother changing it from my PC implementation.

    Making it as easy to use as possible would be awesome.

    I like the search option.

    The website has been updated! Still use the link in the OP. All YouTube videos now work, you now only have to type in the 11 character ID, I added something cool to the player, and you no longer need to refresh the page to watch a second video. Thanks for the support guys!

    Yeah it was no problem! Most of the fixes just came naturally by making it do a YouTube embed. It does kinda suck, tho.

    My favourite part of my update is the Joy-Con! You can see it better here if you want. It looks cool!

    Yeah you don't have to but that's the point. It's just a cool little addition!

    It should work. Just type in the ID and it should come up.

    It could be solved if you send the search via the URL and not javascript, right? This way, You'll allways refresh the site and clean the cache. Or maybe you can find some javascript function that refresh the cache.
