Struggling with Youtube Player Support Fragment

Im trying to use the Youtube Player Support Fragment in a fragment but the app always crash (NullPointerException) and I have not been able to find any similar post to fix it.

I have import import android.support.v4.app.Fragment so that should not be the problem.

This is how my fragment class looks like:

package com.example.activitydetector;
import com.google.android.youtube.player.YouTubeBaseActivity;
import com.google.android.youtube.player.YouTubeInitializationResult;
import com.google.android.youtube.player.YouTubePlayer;
import com.google.android.youtube.player.YouTubePlayer.OnInitializedListener;
import com.google.android.youtube.player.YouTubePlayer.Provider;
import com.google.android.youtube.player.YouTubePlayerFragment;
import com.google.android.youtube.player.YouTubePlayerSupportFragment;
import com.google.android.youtube.player.YouTubePlayerView;
import systemManager.SystemManager;
import android.app.Activity;
import android.bluetooth.BluetoothAdapter;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.support.v4.app.Fragment;
import android.util.Log;
import android.view.LayoutInflater;
import android.view.View;
import android.view.View.OnClickListener;
import android.view.ViewGroup;
import android.widget.Button;
import android.widget.LinearLayout;
import android.widget.Toast;

public class GuidelinesFragment extends YouTubePlayerSupportFragment {

SystemManager sm;
YouTubePlayerView youTubeView;
String URL_VIDEO = "CaA-k1l0xa4";
String KEY_DEVELOPER = "AIzaSyBIIs0u0NXhsZguv8nCNvSzUmflTt7K1Ek";

public GuidelinesFragment() {
super();
// TODO Auto-generated constructor stub
}

public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
// TODO Auto-generated method stub
super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);


}

public View onCreateView(LayoutInflater inflater, ViewGroup container, Bundle savedInstanceState) {

View view = inflater.inflate(R.layout.youtube, container, false);


YouTubePlayerSupportFragment youTubePlayerSupportFragment = (YouTubePlayerSupportFragment) getFragmentManager().findFragmentById(R.id.youtubeplayerfragment);

youTubePlayerSupportFragment.initialize(KEY_DEVELOPER, new OnInitializedListener() {

@Override
public void onInitializationSuccess(Provider arg0, YouTubePlayer arg1,
boolean arg2) {
// TODO Auto-generated method stub
arg1.cueVideo(URL_VIDEO);
}

@Override
public void onInitializationFailure(Provider arg0,
YouTubeInitializationResult arg1) {
// TODO Auto-generated method stub

}
});

return view;
}

}


This is my totally and simple "Youtube" layout:

<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="match_parent"
android:orientation="vertical"
tools:context=".MainActivity" >

<fragment
android:name="com.google.android.youtube.player.YouTubePlayerSupportFragment"
android:id="@+id/youtubeplayerfragment"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="wrap_content"/>




And this is the error that the log shows:

ANY help or hint would be deeply grateful. I have already wasted around 4 hours without luck.

Answer

I ran into this problem before and I believe the issue stemmed from trying to inflate the YouTubePlayerSupportFragment layout. I solved my issue by creating a fragment like so:

    public class PlayerYouTubeFrag extends YouTubePlayerSupportFragment {

    private String currentVideoID = "video_id";
    private YouTubePlayer activePlayer;

    public static PlayerYouTubeFrag newInstance(String url) {

    PlayerYouTubeFrag playerYouTubeFrag = new PlayerYouTubeFrag();

        Bundle bundle = new Bundle();
        bundle.putString("url", url);

        playerYouTubeFrag.setArguments(bundle);

        return playerYouTubeFrag;
    }

    private void init() {

        initialize(DeveloperKey.DEVELOPER_KEY, new OnInitializedListener() {

            @Override
            public void onInitializationFailure(Provider arg0, YouTubeInitializationResult arg1) { }

            @Override
            public void onInitializationSuccess(YouTubePlayer.Provider provider, YouTubePlayer player, boolean wasRestored) {
                activePlayer = player;
                activePlayer.setPlayerStyle(YouTubePlayer.PlayerStyle.DEFAULT);
                if (!wasRestored) {
                    activePlayer.loadVideo(getArguments().getString("url"), 0);

                }
            }
        });
    }

    @Override
    public void onYouTubeVideoPaused() {
        activePlayer.pause();
    }
}

And then calling an instance of the fragment like so:

PlayerYouTubeFrag myFragment = PlayerYouTubeFrag.newInstance("video_id");
getSupportFragmentManager().beginTransaction().replace(R.id.video_container, myFragment).commit();

Where video_container in my case was an empty frame layout.
