What is Yahoo! Player?

Yahoo! The player is a common alias for the Yahoo WebPlayer, a free utility offered by Yahoo! that required webmasters to add a mere line or so of code to their sites in order to provide users with a quick playing tool that could load media from links. The Yahoo WebPlayer was notably free of restrictions for use: not only was it free but it also did not even require users to be registered on Yahoo to add it to their sites.

The WebPlayer was capable of loading videos as well as audio. It allowed site owners to customize it in a number of ways, specifically in the way it behaved when dealing with specific types of media, and was also able to link to Yahoo’s movie webpages as well as YouTube videos.

In late 2013, there were reports of it having been discontinued, as many webmasters found the players on their websites unresponsive around this time.
