flutube 0.2.0

FluTube #

Embed Youtube videos in your flutter apps just by passing in the video URL!

This plugin uses an in-built API so the official YT API is not used here and therefore you don't need any API keys.

This plugin also uses the great plugin Chewie to provide a nice material or cupertino video player. And please note this plugin is NOT a replacement for Chewie. Chewie is a great plugin and here we are just using it. I have updated Chewie with some of the pull requests it had on the original repo as well.

Huge thank you to @brianegan for developing Chewie.
