Can not view youtube clips in webview

Hi

I'm trying to view youtube clips within webview component but i get an error message saying "this video is currently unavailable."

the code snippet is quiet simple:
final WebView wv = new WebView();
wv.getEngine().load( "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rHcnsEoSK_c");
am I doing something wrong?

thanks

Eyal

    Works fine for me (win7+jdk1.7u6)
    import javafx.application.Application;
    import javafx.scene.*;
    import javafx.scene.web.WebView;
    import javafx.stage.Stage;
    
    public class SimpleYouTubePlayer extends Application {
      public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception { launch(args); }
      @Override public void start(final Stage stage) throws Exception {
        WebView webView = new WebView();
        webView.getEngine().load("http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rHcnsEoSK_c");
        stage.setScene(new Scene(webView));
        stage.show();
      }
    }

    Check out the system requirements: http://docs.oracle.com/javafx/2/system_requirements_2-2/jfxpub-system_requirements_2-2.htm
    For Windows XP and Windows Vista, JavaFX Media 2.2 requires that one of the following external modules be installed to play AAC audio and H.264/AVC video:
    MainConcept H.264/AVC Pro Decoder Pack
    DivX Plus Codec Pack
    MainConcept Showcase (includes demo version codecs)
    DivX is freely downloadable: http://www.divx.com/

    Installing DIVX+ did work.

    Thanks
