Hi!

I've developed a 3d app, now I would like to insert a video from youtube.com directly inside the game. Any component / libraries for that?

Probably not, as this is very likely to be a violation of their terms of service.

If you call it an "interactive animated web browser" instead of a "game" then you should be fine :D

p.s. as for what to use... they suggest you use their embeddable player:


You agree not to access Content through any technology or means other than the video playback pages of the Service itself, the Embeddable Player, or other explicitly authorized means YouTube may designate.

There are plenty of programs that will download and convert a YouTube video into a file that can be used. But that's pretty questionable with their TOS, too, even if it's not copyrighted stuff.
