Hi community.
Installed Kodi on Xiaomi mi box tv 
Looking for way to screencast youtube music videos of my Spotify playlists. Is there anything already similar so I can pickup and contribute to. Plugins or other script?
It going to be for local homebrew pub so my hands should be free to pouring a beer . Not hassling with playlists . The music vids !
Thanks in advance!
@anxdpanic ,

I tried the documentation to enable adaptive inputstream.

But at step 5 I don't have "VideoPlayer InputStream" appearing in the list...

The kodi Add-on Repository is however well activated ...

Thanks the help me.
Latest Youtube add-on beta on a Win 10 machine (matrix) exhibits these types of issues:

Suggested videos (continuous playback) no longer works.
Recommendations are actually missing from the menu (which leads me to think you already know about this)
the search function crashes Kodi the moment you actually hit "Done" typing in the search terms. 

Don't have time to post logs or anything at this moment but thought I'd get that out there real quick. Thanks for this add-on!
@anxdpanic ,

It should be installed by executing the following in a terminal:
Code:
sudo apt-get install kodi-inputstream-adaptive

Then you have to activate it in the kodi extensions and then activate it in the settings of the youtube addon.

It's not complicated as a procedure Rofl .

I finally able to configure MPEG-DASH in the youtube settings but I still have the same problems Confused .

You want to somehow automatically find the YouTube video from a Spotify track? Extract meta-data from the track should be easy I guess via the Spotify API. But I don't know if there is a easy way or an existing scraper to get the YouTube video from that.

Had to create a personal playlist and it adds some steps to store vids and then find them on other devices, but at least it works.
Yup, died after upgrading to 6.8.9-matrix.1~beta3, just gives PlaylistNotFound error. It's not in the Playlist sections either. I know this is a beta so I'd expect bugs, but since the official one stopped working a few weeks ago the beta is the only version that works at all now Smile

Recommendations is completely gone as well.

I did read that post, but there was no solution there or am I missing something? Just a suggestion to add stuff to any other playlist. But that's not a real solution since Watch Later is a special YouTube playlist, it's not replaceable by the normal ones. The YouTube UI allows you to add to Watch Later in lots of places.
I have the same issue, also "My Subscriptions" and "History" are empty.

I was currious about the space "%20" in the URL.
 
Quote:ERROR: [plugin.video.youtube] Error reason: |playlistNotFound| with message: |The playlist identified with the request's playlistId parameter cannot be found.
ERROR: GetDirectory - Error getting plugin://plugin.video.youtube/channel/mine/playlist/%20WL/
I tried to change " WL" for "WL" (without the space) in the plugin code (.py files) but still the same error is showing up. Delete the .pyo files.

But still seeing the same exact error with "%20WL", any idea ?
Quote:ERROR: CGUIMediaWindow::GetDirectory(plugin://plugin.video.youtube/channel/mine/playlist/%20WL/) failed

YouTube Kodi addon relied on a deprecated and now dead API.
Many functions were lost when google progressively phased out that API.
Unless I'm wrong, I think the 'Watch Later' function was lost for the same reason.
The proposed work around works, even if it's a little more cumbersome, at least it works.

Get the development version as it has a solution for "My Subscriptions".

And next time please read the last pages of the thread as the solution has been discussed for a while.
