Download and 'Install from Zip' this version for Matrix: plugin.video.youtube-6.8.18.alpha3+matrix.1.zip from here: https://github.com/anxdpanic/plugin.vide.../6.x.x-dev

Or, install the Test Repo and then that same Alpha 3 version by following the instructions in my earlier post here: https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid...pid3064138

Hope this helps Nod

yea but if that's the remedy we could just use the official youtube app

See my post just above. I took the time to give you the exact details.

You need this version for Matrix: plugin.video.youtube-6.8.18.alpha3+matrix.1.zip

PS: per my post here with a copy of the release notes you will need to sign in again - twice:

Thanks again for such quick responses I will be trying this soon.   My 80 yo uncle loves your version of youtube to watch his Opera videos.   He wont use regular youtube , says yours is easier for him to use
I am still running Kodi Leia 18.9 and everything from YouTube has become pretty much unwatchable, do you think any of these new versions will work under Leia?  I'm really not wanting to upgrade Kodi if I don't have to because for once everything is working as it should, except now for YouTube.

Yes the versions above that do not include the word Matrix.

So the latest standard version for Leia would be this one: plugin.video.youtube-6.8.18.alpha3.zip

I didn't notice this Huh I installed it from the Test Repo earlier without any issues, and after your post I just downloaded the Zip from GitHub and that worked without any issues too.
