using this in an strm file will add a certain Youtube video to it.
plugin://plugin.video.youtube/?path=/root/video&action=play_video&videoid="Your_YoutubeVideoID"

Can anyone please help me with similar code for adding an entire Youtube Playlist
Is there a way for this plugin to load favorites and subscriptions from my oldschool youtube account instead of google+ which I don't use?
Never mind next time i will search first.
Just wondering if channels with large playlists make Version 4.4.7 crash ?
Still not working, login fail
Hi Fellow XBMC YouTube Watchers

I have around 130 subscriptions and normally see more than 50 new videos released/uploaded from my subscriptions each day. I don't watch 50 new videos per day but because of the "50 video limit" I often miss out on seeing the videos I do want to watch in my New Subscription Videos feed.

What is the "50 video limit?"

When viewing the "New Subscription Videos" feed it will only show 50 videos, changing the videos per page settings makes no difference.

I played around with the feed URL and noticed Youtube will not serve results for anything when the "start-index" is over 50. If I set the "start-index" to 49 and leave the "max-results" at 50 I get 2 videos in the results.

http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api/users/default/newsubscriptionvideos?start-index=49&max-results=50&oauth_token=my-auth-token

Has anyone come across this issue before? I'm hoping there is a way around it...

Thanks.

-Chris

Vimeo fix worked, although I only tested watching some videos (I don't have an account)

YouTube worked and signed in into my Google account, which I don't use, I use my old YT one which I resisted to merge with G+, so now that's a @pages.plusgoogle.com thing which has all of my favourites, subs, etc. With this fix I could sign in with that, but nothing account related loads.
So I gave up and tried to merge the accounts... only to learn that it cannot be done.

Hi all, I have the exact same problem, when signing in with a page.plusgoogle.com the plugin returns the info related to the G+ account of the owner of the page, not the page settings.

Any way to retrieve channel data?

Regards,
Filipe M.

update with what?
(2014-05-24, 14:53)peppe_sr Wrote: [ -> ]no problem, it is really easy.
just install yatse remote from playstore (the official xbmc remote has some problem with latest version of the youtube app).
configure yatse (i think this is necessary)
from the android youtube app on your device search a video. tap on the three vertical dots and tap again on share (shoud be share, i use the italian version of the app that said "condividi").
you will see a list with all the app you could use to share the link of the video. tap on yatse icon and the video will start on your xbmc.
that's all Nod
tell me if you need more help via MP here we are out of topic

Thanks Peppe, that worked great and it's really cool to be able to show my friends youtube videos on my big TV Smile

This update did not fix the login issues, but with the help of this video I could successfully login in the first try even with the two-step verification option activated.

Download from youtube not working after I upgraded raspbmc and youtube plugin to latest versions.

Is anyone else same problem?
can you please add Greeks as Subtitles ? is not in configuration Smile

In new version the VEVO works great ...and the login is now fixed !
Hi there!

Perhaps this might help a developer or user to fix/workaround the "URL not found" error:

I have a 2FA account, which (obviously) doesn't work with default versions of the plugin. It also didn't work with any other source patch I found in this thread, so I used to OAuth method (see 3 posts above) to log into my account. But whenever I was logged in, the plugin refused to play any video (script error url not found).

I think that is because I deleted the plain text password from settings.xml - After I added a random string as the user_password value, the plugin works fine.

BTW: Is anybody in for a crowd-funded youtube plugin? I don't mean to blame the developers, I appreciate their hard work - but it's volunteer work. The YouTube-Plugin didn't work for me since months. And since this thread has more than 4000 posts I can't be the only one struggling with this software... Maybe we need some paid developer(s) to fix this? I'd happily spend $20 for a working YT plugin with proper support and reliable updates.
