and still now ... just in these minutes ... no more YouTube videos working using the mpeg-dash.

i have tryed mpeg-dash on twitch and it's work... also try to reboot kodi and reboot physically my pi2 and not resolve the issue....
For me some YouTube videos stopped working today.
This has worked for me:
* Settings - Maintenance - Delete access_manager.json and then re-login (not re-entering keys)

After that re-login with Google account NOT YouTube account!
What's the current solution for Recommendations?

I've looked at this issue on github:
Quote: 
Create a new playlist, open Main Menu - Playlists, use the context menu on the playlist you created, and choose Set as History
That will be your Kodi watch history playlist. It will only track your Kodi playback but the playlist will be available to other devices, it is also used to generate the list of recommendations and
Recommendations won't be shown until you've configured the watch history playlist.

This is another casualty of the recent changes, sorry it's a bit of a pita but it's the current alternative.
, and I have created a playlist on Youtube, but when I try to go into "Playlists" at the main menu of the youtube Kodi addon, it pops up an error, "YouTube: ChannelNotFound". "My Subscriptions" is working though, so I do think I'm authenticated correctly.

Is there any way I can get Recommendations back?
OK I worked it out. I was signed into my basic youtube account, not the youtube "Brand Account" that I usually use.

I had to Sign out, then sign back in and make sure to choose the Brand Account. After that, I could make a new playlist and save history, and then Recommendations showed up.
OK well after a promising start, the Recommendations don't seem to be working properly.

There's about 16 or so in there, but no more, and they don't seem to be updating at all.

I have done the "set as history" for a playlist that I created. Should videos that I have watched be automatically added to that playlist?

What am I doing wrong? Does Recommendations work at all anymore?
I can't get the history to work, because I do not get a history playlist with google takeout. Am I missing something ?
The way I understand it, you create a new playlist on youtube, eg "kodi_history", then in the kodi youtube app you bring up the menu on that playlist and choose "set as history".

Then your Recommendations will work, or at least they're meant to.

Doing that made "recommendations" visible on the main menu, but I'm only getting a single page of recommendations and they don't seem to be updating much. So I'm not sure it's working properly.
Oh thank you I understand now that we get an history playlist for the plugin. But I can't get the original youtube history, that tells me what I watched with my youtube profile on any device.
My first post.  I have registered for the YouTube API, but I cannot copy or paste the data into the API screen.  I already have the data in a JSON file in userdata, but it doesn't show up.  I can't think of any alternative.  An earlier tutorial said "Copy and paste the info," but recent forum posts say that it isn't possible.
@dlbendigo - your thread/post above has been merged into the main YouTube support thread.

Just FYI, in case you were wondering where it had gone.

You activate the http server in kodi, and then use your web browser to go to http://<IP of Kodi device>:50152/api and paste it into there.

Look at https://github.com/anxdpanic/plugin.vide...l-API-Keys
It's method 2 from that page that I was talking about, that's what I did.

Thanks.  I knew that  there had to be a way.
So after following the YouTube API key video I'm finally done and greeted by the "Authorization Error Error 403: access_denied" screen.

It's the same error either at youtube.com/activate or google.com/device  - any advice?

And found the answer buried way back in the thread - this was not in the video at all.
I am interested on this kind of use case:

Browse youtube on laptop using Firefox browser, when something nice is found I click a (firefox add-on) button in browser and the video starts playing on tv using kodi youtube add-on.

Do you think this is possible / feasible / anything.
