Hello. For some time now (I do not remember the exact version but this is going on definitely for 3-4 months) I have this problem: up to 1440p resolutions the videos play fine. When I choose 2160p I get video but no audio. The problem persists on version v6.8.18. Is it anything that I should check/ uncheck? Thanks in advance.

plugin.video.youtube-6.8.18.alpha6+matrix.1.zip installed.

19.0.0.1 Inputstream

I get no sound with [email protected]

720p works with audio

Audio Only works.

Weirdly when I ask to pick resolution, the 1080p has an audio rate of 128.

1080p (mpd h264 / [email protected]) = no audio
720p (mp4 h264 / [email protected]) = audio
360p (mp4 h264 / [email protected]) = audio
Did you find any solution? I have the same problem, but with 2160p videos.
Just wanted to say thanks to the dev and all the testers for their work on the youtube throttling problem.   The add-on updated yesterday and Youtube is back to normal.

Please open an Issue for your problems here on GitHub so that it can be investigated: https://github.com/anxdpanic/plugin.vide...ube/issues

Thanks Smile
Just did it. Thanks for the heads-up.
Hi should there be any difference if i signin to the app with my account that has a premium youtube subscription? I would also create the api access on that account.

I know that the app works like a charm now (really a big big thank you as my son loves to watch old cartoons) but just in case google starts messing with things again. They are the ones behind the youtibe app slowdown right?

Would being signed in with a premium account be stutter free?
Hi,

for many months and maybe even years, I have been making extensive use of the YouTube add-on's ability to offer automatically translated CZ subtitles for EN videos. Which was great for other household members who don't speak enough English to understand the videos themselves directly in EN. I don't know what happened where, but I lost that ability within YouTube and all I am currently able to achieve is EN subtitles for EN videos.

Would anyone please be able to advise me on how to get back to the state I had before? Specifically to have automatic translation and CZ subtitles for EN videos again? I would greatly appreciate it and my family would appreciate it even more.

.. I will add that I have always had an option for these purposes within the YouTube add-on, under subtitle settings: "Non-functional CS with EN", which just ensured automatic translation of subtitles into CZ if YouTube allowed it and if not, then I got at least EN subtitles.

Thank you in advance,
Martin
Nevermind. Perceived error resolved itself.
Hi,

I hope I'm at the right place here Smile . I just registered just so I can ask this question because I couldn't really find an answer. 

Does this addon support surround sound?

Surround sound works flawlessy at my setup for the standard (non-addon) stuff via pass through (to my avr).
I've set up the whole stuff (including inputstream adaptive / overclocking etc.) on an raspbery pi 2 with libreelec.
I get an 1080p 60fps video stream but only stereo audio stream (for some tested 5.1 test videos on youtube (I know that most videos on youtube only provide stereo))

I've searched a lot but haven't found a clear statement if this should work or not.
I would be glad if somebody can enlighten me.

Thanks in advance

Ok, I've read a lot now that other third party app "support" surround sound but I just found out it seems that youtube still doesn't support surround sound at all. I was not expecting this...
So my request can then be ignored.

I use Kodi on a decade old htpc with Win7 and that plays 5.1 test/demo videos from youtube fine with all channels. Maybe it's a system limitation on the Pi or libreelec?

Two such videos in case you still want to test:
- DTS test
- Dolby demo

YouTube does not support surround sound YET. They announced in June 2021 that YouTube TV's 4K Ultra HD Add-On Package will support 5.1 Dolby surround sound audio. YouTube TV’s 4K Plus will be available at an additional $19.99 per month regularly, on top of the base $64.99/month price.

can you try a video with 1080p 60fps (best from another app that has to do the
h264 by itself)?
Hello,
I also have this BUG. Isn't there still a fix for this? In my case, the channels were missing since the beginning, I have about 12-15 channel subscriptions, but only 3 appear. I have cleaned everything with the Maintenance menu, relogged in and I get the same result. Tested with the latest stable version of this addon, Kodi 19.3 on Nvidia Shield TV.

Thanks in advance.
