Default YouTube Videos In A "Carousel" Player?

I'm looking for a "carousel" type of video player to play 20 - 30 YouTube-hosted videos from a specific YouTube channel.

By looking through the YouTube help "add a video to your site" pages and info, I found how to add a YouTube "strip" player, but not a "carousel" player.

By carousel player, I'm looking for a thumbnail-size row of scrollable images across the bottom (or top, or either side) of the player's window which is displaying a frame from one of the videos. Click a thumb then that video plays in the window.

A search for video carousel player gave lots of results, but I didn't see one that works with YouTube videos.

Any suggestions for a carousel-type player for YouTube videos?

Thanks.

Video is not my thing but do you mean something like this?

Google has a widget but that isn't exactly what you want.

Hi, Tom.

Thanks for your time!

Very close, but not exactly.

What I'm looking for is like this...



...except without the search or embed or URL.

The one problem with this particular player is that the thumbnails didn't appear until after the first video played and ended. I want the thumbnails to be there before a video plays.

After finding this, I went back into YouTube for more looking and it seems as though it is available (or can be built) through YouTube via their API and custom player. But to do that, I gotta get a YouTube/Google account.
