Stop video in UIWebView

In my iPad App I have a modal view (UIViewController with modal presentation style UIModalPresentationPageSheet)

Inside the view is a UIWebView with a HTML page and an embedded YouTube-Video. If I start the video and close the view, the video doesn't stop. The audio continues and you can see a small "play icon" next to the "battery icon" in the status bar.

How can I stop the video?


  • Do integrate following code to sort out the problem.

            [webView loadHTMLString:nil baseURL:nil];
