You Tube and Google Earth Synchronisation

Using the YouTube API and the Google Earth API it is possible to synchronise a video to the Google Earth plugin. In other words it is possible to create a Google Earth tour to illustrate a YouTube video or it is possible to create a video to provide a narration of a Google Earth tour.

I've created two examples:
In both examples you should ignore the YouTube buttons and just use the buttons underneath the Google Earth plugin.

I think this idea has a lot of potential. One way in which the idea could be used is by geography or architecture lecturers to create a Google Earth tour and then video and synchronise a narration of the tour. I'm sure that other developers will think of more applications for this idea.
