Does the XBMC youtube plugin support 5.1 audio ?
There are 5.1 test videos on youtube but they come out as 'stereo' in XBMC.

Thx.

I think that youtube itself does not support 5.1 the video is encoded in stereo. Probably the videos are fakes, but I can be in wrong.

Frist of all you need to create a specific password for your old youtube account. To do this you have to log in youtube and select your administrator account(or rather the google+ account). Going on
youtube.com/account_advanced. Now you can find the option to setting a new password for your old account.

In that page you can also find your new account name. Somethings like this [email protected] Keep it in mind.

Now you have to reset youtube plugin setting because there is some issue if you try to login with new accounts.
To do that manually delete the configuration files on xbmc system folder(i don't remember where it is but you can find this information on google)

Now you have the plugin fresh and clean and you can going to login. The secret is to use all your account and not only the first part. So use [email protected] and for the password the new.

It's works for me with the last linux build and youtube plugin 4.4.6 hope works for you too.
Thanks! That worked.

I took YouTubeLogin.py from 4.4.3b version (which has always worked for me when something screwed up in newest) and replaced it in 4.4.6


- Connect your YouTube account with Google+
- Set up new password if you have to
- Update your addon to 4.4.6
- Replace YouTubeLogin.py (XBMC\addons\plugin.video.youtube\YouTubeLogin.py) with this one - http://pastebin.com/Hg5jPDCz
- Login using your new username and password ([email protected])
This custom Python file helped my case a bit, it will enter password and the PIN thing pop up, however after the PIN is entered, it just tells me "False". It takes forever to process it.
I tried even disable the two-fact. auth, but it gives me the same error.

Here is complete log: http://pastebin.com/PRJbRQ0w

Everything seems to work, until this error occurs:
17:48:21 T:139857253091200 ERROR: GetDirectory - Error getting plugin://plugin.video.youtube/?action=settings&path=%2froot%2flogin
17:48:21 T:139857253091200 ERROR: CGUIMediaWindow::GetDirectory(plugin://plugin.video.youtube/?action=settings&path=%2froot%2flogin) failed


Any idea what that could be, any solutions?

Thanks!

Anyone know how to get Youtube plugin to work on Android, MK808?
Getting script failed errors. It has something to do with Python locale.

When will a new version of the script be released that will fix the issue with playing videos that have embedded ads? I'd rather watch the ads than have to minimize XBMC and go into a web browser each time I want to watch a video that has an ad in the beginning. I saw some people found a fix that was working for some, but I have had no luck. I am surprised this issue has not been resolved after months of it not working correctly.

Thank you so very much for these instructions. I think it had to be at least 2 months (obviously I tried tips on this thread but nothing seemed to work) since my YouTube plugin was able to login. So nice having your personal stuff vs just searching/browsing. I was able to also fix my buddy's account. So fun how Google has made the sign-in process. My buddy had to "unlink" his YouTube account and then assign a Google+ profile before even this would work, yet my account was 1-2-3.

I wanted to try your method, but my youtube.com/account_advanced looks completely different. There is just user ID and channel ID, which is just long text string (like a hash). Even when I disconnect my YouTube and Google+ account.

You should find somethings like this "Need more control? Assign an email address and a password to access directly to any channel and override this setting." but to find this you need to switch to you google+ account from the home page of youtube.

Sadly I don't see anything like that there. This is what I see when I disconnect my G+ profile, and this is when it's connected.

Thank you for trying to help, man! Really appreciated!

And if you disconnect youtube account from G+ aren't you able to login with your old username and password?

Nope, and I really don't get that whole thing, as my YouTube and Google account credentials were always the same.
Hey guys, I know I've asked a few times, so I'm guessing no one knows what's going on... but I really love watching The Young Turks, but I can't get the live stream to work. All of the other live streams work just fine, it's just theirs that isn't. I've replaced the youtubeplayer.py to the most recent on listed in the forums (two or three pages back, I think), and still nothing is working.

Here's my log. If you could help me out, that would be awesome.

This is exactly what I see also. I'm in Portugal. Maybe this is specific to some regions.
