Youtube api - stop video

I need some help with Youtube API and embeded videos. I want to stop video when clicked on some element (div,link,td etc.). I am trying to get it work just for 1 video now, but the final function of this script should be to stop all videos loaded on current page. I have read thru the YT API documentation but Im really beginner in JS so its still quite hard to understand for me.

<html>
<head>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="swfobject.js"></script>
</head>
<body>

<a href="javascript:ytplayer.stopVideo()">Play</a>
<br/>
<iframe id="ytplayer" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/8Ax-dAR3ABs?rel=0&iv_load_policy=3&showinfo=0&enablejsapi=1&version=3&playerapiid=ytplayer" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" frameborder="0" allowscriptaccess="always"></iframe>

</body>
</html>

thanks in advance for any advices

You can't control it if you embed it with an iframe. You have to use object embedding, like this:

<object id="ytplayer" style="height: 390px; width: 640px">
    <param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/8Ax-dAR3ABs?version=3&enablejsapi=1">
    <param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always">
    <embed id="ytplayer" src="http://www.youtube.com/v/8Ax-dAR3ABs?version=3&enablejsapi=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" allowScriptAccess="always" width="640" height="390">
</object>

The rest of your code should generally work after that, although it may need to be updated to say:

<a href="javascript:document.getElementById('ytplayer').stopVideo()">Play</a>

Also, have you seen the demo site? http://code.google.com/apis/youtube/youtube_player_demo.html

I recently wrote a little jquery for this, from the youtube api

I wanted to stop all videos from playing with a single action

<html>
<head>
<!-- jquery -->
<script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-latest.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
</head>
  <body>
    <!-- player divs -->
    <div id="player1"></div>
    <div id="player2"></div>
    <div id="player3"></div>

    <a class="stop">Stop</a>

    <script>
      // load  api
      var tag = document.createElement('script');
      tag.src = "//www.youtube.com/iframe_api";
      var firstScriptTag = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0];
      firstScriptTag.parentNode.insertBefore(tag, firstScriptTag);

      // make player array
      var players = new Array();

      function onYouTubeIframeAPIReady() {
        players[0] = new YT.Player('player1', {
          height: '390',
          width: '640',
          videoId: 'u1zgFlCw8Aw'
        });
        players[1] = new YT.Player('player2', {
          height: '390',
          width: '640',
          videoId: 'u1zgFlCw8Aw'
        });
        players[2] = new YT.Player('player3', {
          height: '390',
          width: '640',
          videoId: 'u1zgFlCw8Aw'
        });
      }

      $('.stop').click( function() {
        //loop players array to stop them all
        $(players).each(function(i){
           this.stopVideo();
          });
      });


    </script>
  </body>
</html>

or to stop a single video:

$('.stop').click( function() {
   playerVariableName.stopVideo();
});
Answer

Not familiar with the youtube api, but this should work assuming your other code is correct:

<script type="text/javascript">
    player = document.getElementById('ytplayer');

    function stop(){
        player.stopVideo();
        return false;
    }
</script>

<a href="#" onclick="stop()">Play</a>

Insert this into the place of your <a href="javascript:ytplayer.stopVideo()">Play</a> tag.
