Integrate youtube video and auto playback on iOS 6 do not work

  • Can you autoplay HTML5 videos on the iPad? 6 answers

I'm trying to embed youtube video and autoplay it on my app. The code is not working on iOS6, however it runs on older iOS 5 perfectly.

I do it in this way:

-(IBAction)playVideo:(id)sender {

myWebView = [[UIWebView alloc] initWithFrame:CGRectMake(0, 0, 320, 400)];
myWebView.delegate = self;
[myWebView setAllowsInlineMediaPlayback:YES];

[myWebView loadHTMLString:[NSString stringWithFormat:@"<embed id=\"yt\" src=\"%@\" type=\"application/x-shockwave-flash\" width=\"300\" height=\"300\"></embed>", @""] baseURL:nil];


- (UIButton *)findButtonInView:(UIView *)view {
UIButton *button = nil;

if ([view isMemberOfClass:[UIButton class]]) {
    return (UIButton *)view;

if (view.subviews && [view.subviews count] > 0) {
    for (UIView *subview in view.subviews) {
        button = [self findButtonInView:subview];
        if (button) return button;
return button;

-(void)webViewDidFinishLoad:(UIWebView *)webView {

UIButton *b = [self findButtonInView:webView];
[b sendActionsForControlEvents:UIControlEventTouchUpInside];

So- when the webview is loaded, it finds automatically the uibutton and the video starts. I can't understand, why in iOS 6 this method doesn't work anymore. It loads the video, but nothing appears...

Anyone can help me? I'm going crazy to try to solve it...

You need to use JS command. This link should help.
