How do you add a "load more videos" button

I have a webpage that loads some videos from a youtube channel.

 It works great. However, now I need a way to only show 9 at a time then have a button that when clicked will get nine more.

 I have no idea how to do this.  Any help will be greatly appreciated.

A button : <input type="button" value="load more video" />
A global javascript parameter : currIndex = 1; // current index 1 to start
A global javascript parameter : maxRes = 9; // max results 9
An URL parameter to specify the first to load :
An URL parameter to specify how many to load (you already have this) :

Check this SIMPLE test page :

Thank you so much for the reply!!

Is there a way to "add" the videos,  as opposed to only show 9 at a time.

So there would be 9 then when you push the load more video button there would be 18.. and so forth?

Thanks again for the help!
