You would notice, to construct FLV URL, I am doing client side parsing of YouTube html page to find out “t” param. This doesn’t work in Internet Explorer 6.0 (IE 6) because of a bug where IE 6.0 doesn’t uncompress gzipped page if requested through LoadVars?
In production mode, I would prefer server-side proxy to find out “t” param because it’s optimized:
- Would work in IE 6.0 and other browsers.
- Doesn’t require loading YouTube html page ( > 20 KB) and parsing.
