The problem is that I can not play any of this videos. I looked around online but the most of show only how you would play from one src, but in my web page I have more than one. Thank You for replying!:)

You cannot show video embedded except perhaps on devices that have Flash. If you can parse out the YouTube video details, you may be able to construct an ACTION_VIEW Intent that will show them on the YouTube application(for those Android devices that have the YouTube application). Also experiment with HTML5's
HTML
<video>
tag, which is supported in the Browser application and may therefore work in WebView.
