Hi there...

I have been receiving the following error when trying to watch a YouTube video launched from "ExtendedInfo" plugin:

Err:    "No YouTube ID Found" 

Kodi:   kodi-18.2-Leia-x64
Windows 10 Pro x64
Sikin:  MikeSilvo  AeonNox latest  (actually, tried other skins as well... same result: no youtube id found)

PS: also tried updating the plugins and add-ons with the latest version from  Marcelveldt... same result: no youtube id found.

Does anybody have an idea as to why?

Thanks to 

@ruuk  (youtube-dl addon)
