PlayX 2.6 YouTube Player

Originally uploaded by sk89q on 16th August 2011 01:15 am

PlayX plays Internet videos and audio � YouTube, Livestream, Shoutcast, MP3s, images,, Hulu when the stars are aligned, and more! Bring all your friends together and hold a video night! Don't worry if a friend arrives late � your friend will start the video where everyone else is (this doesn't work for Vimeo).
Here's a video of PlayX in action:
If you are on the server, PlayX can only be used to watch videos with other people. It's not a client-side video player. It cannot play files on your computer.
----- WHAT'S NEW IN 2.6 ----
- No more "Embedding disabled by request" -- you can play ALL YouTube videos that you can normally play
- The new PlayX Navigator lets you browse for videos completely in-game!
- The media query extension (that adds !yt and !ytplay chat commands) is now included by default.
- Shifted the title text position in the radio player display so that it's back in the right place.
- Fixed several other bugs.
Just drop the PlayX folder in the ZIP file into your addons folder.
- How to use:

This download looks like an addon. You need to extract the downloaded zip and put the addon folder in your Garry's Mod addons folder. You should end up with a directory structure similar to below:

  • steamapps
    • common
      • garrysmod
        • garrysmod
          • addons
            • PlayX <-- Addon folder!
              • e.g.
              • lua
              • maps
              • materials
              • models
              • etc
