I have a viewPager with for 10 pages. In all of theses pages, I have a YouTubePlayer with a different id video.
The problem is that all the YouTubePlayer component has the same video at the same time.

Concretely :
When the first page is displayed, the YouTubePlayer show the first video, so all seems to be ok. When I try to scroll to the 2nd page, I can see that the 2nd YouTubePlayer show the same video. When the 2nd page is completely displayed (After scrolling), behind the view pager prepare the 3rd page. So on the 3rd page the 3rd id video is set to the YouTubePlayer component. At that moment the 2nd page currently displayed switch automatically to the 3rd video.

It was like if the instance of YouTubePlayer was single for all the pages. But on each page new FragmentYouTubePlayer() is correctly called.

I don't understand where is the problem. Finally, I wonder if it's possible to use severals YouTubePlayer component (in a viewpager) at the same time or not ?

 YouTubePlayer follows the Singleton pattern controlling all the different YouTubePlayerView instances. 

Just out of curiouslty i have implelemented a sample for this and it worked for me, so my code may help you analyze your problem

In my main activity, using PagerAdapter :
private class ScreenSlidePagerAdapter extends FragmentStatePagerAdapter {
    public ScreenSlidePagerAdapter(android.support.v4.app.FragmentManager fm) {
    public android.support.v4.app.Fragment getItem(int position) {
        fragmentYouTubeContent = FragmentYouTubeContent.create(position);
        return fragmentYouTubeContent;
    public int getCount() {
        int nb = 3;
        return nb;
My FragmentYouTubeContent.class
package com.orange.OrangeJobs;

import java.util.List;

import com.google.android.youtube.player.YouTubeInitializationResult;
import com.google.android.youtube.player.YouTubeStandalonePlayer;
import com.google.android.youtube.player.YouTubeThumbnailLoader;
import com.google.android.youtube.player.YouTubeThumbnailView;

public class FragmentYouTubeContent extends Fragment implements YouTubeThumbnailView.OnInitializedListener {
      public static final int REQ_START_STANDALONE_PLAYER = 101;
      private static final int REQ_RESOLVE_SERVICE_MISSING = 2;

                    if (intent != null) {
                      if (canResolveIntent(intent)) {
                          canHideStatusBar = true;
                          startActivityForResult(intent, REQ_START_STANDALONE_PLAYER);
                      } else {
                          // Could not resolve the intent - must need to install or update the YouTube API service.
                                .getErrorDialog(getActivity(), REQ_RESOLVE_SERVICE_MISSING).show();

            Toast.makeText(getActivity(), errorMessage, Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
