My Video Add-Ons are not working. I can't search or stream any videos. I was able to before but I'm not sure what happened. The Add-Ons im using are...(Food Network, Fox News, G4TV, HGTV, HowStuffWorks, Kids Place, NBA Video, etc.) When I also try to view a trailer it says "Playback failed couldn't locate video url". I think I have a problem with my add-ons locating the urls or something.

Welcome to the XBMC forums.

Enable debug logging in XBMC. Exit XBMC. Restart XBMC and wait a couple of minutes for it to complete initialization. Launch the problem add-on and, when it fails or returns an error, exit XBMC immediately. Locate your debug log (xbmc.log) and upload it to http://www.pastebin.com or http://www.xbmclogs.com and post the URL link to the uploaded log here with your reply.

The YouTube add-on is broken now due to changes made by YouTube. See this post:

Quote:Hi, Youtube changed the way they do playback now, and decided to serve up the "signature" (a security toke) in a separate variable. Combined with the unsuported protocol "=Http" problem, this has completely broken the url parser in our player core.
You encountered this "=http" unsupported protocol error, as seen in your log:
Quote:03:12:53 T:3524 WARNING: XFILE::CFileFactory::CreateLoader - Unsupported protocol(=http) in =http://o-o---preferred--- ...
