1 time out of 4 when I exit I get a black screen and I have to restart my computer so that sucks Wink

As far as i know we don't cache any listings generated by the plugin, so every time you enter the "new subscriptions videos" folder or go to another page in the same folder will result in the plugin requesting new data from youtube, i do believe we enabled xbmc's built in caching on video listings so that using the back button doesn't perform a new request against youtube though, but that will still be replaced if you enter the folder again.
I think XBMC should change its name.

We all know that XBMC comes from XBOX Media Centre and XBMC supports everything but XBOX.

So leave XBOX alone and keep supporting PC's and Mac's. That is the way you want it - that's the way it should be.

I understand that Microsoft probably gave you a hard time with their XBOX name and the exploits done on their system but what is wrong with releasing plugins for XBOX as well? Why don't we have an automatic update?

I did download the code and really thought about doing something to run this Youtube plugin on my XBOX but I just can't be bothered. As much as XBMC can't.
can we please have the possibility to choose between SD video quality?

my internet isp is pretty lame, so youtube only streams 360p videos without buffering... anything beyond that buffers a lot

Hi

1. XBMC hasn't been xbox oriented for over 2 years I believe the xbox effort has been spun out into a team that maintains a fork over at:
http://www.xbmc4xbox.org/

2. We don't support xbox because neither me nor tobias have access to an xbox, nor are we looking for another platform to support (note: the developers of this plugin are not members of Team XBMC, so any discussion of naming are misplaced and have been repeated ad nauseam on this forum, so please refrain from discussing it in this thread as we intend to keep this strictly plugin related.)

3. I do believe that the xbmc4xbox guys have a port of this plugin running on their version so I recommend that you check it out.

Hmm, well it kinda goes against the initial idea of this plugin since we really wanted to push 720p and show the quality of all the stuff that YouTube got.

But that being said i guess we could add an advanced option in the beta that allows setting a limit on SD quality Wink.
hi all, I can't get this plugin to work, only thing that works is by using "Play video by ID".
When I try to go throught Search or explore youtube nothing happens. In xbmc.log I get:

Using latest GIT version on ArchLinux 64bits, erasing .xbmc or reinstalling plugin does not change at all...

edit: in version 2.2.3 it was the same...

Hi, latest git doesnt really tell me much, can you give me a date at least, and a full debug log would also be required.

I've re-tested version 2.2.4 on osx nightly from 05-27 "xbmc-20110527-a48dbf2-master-x86" both listing favorites, explore youtube and searching work fine for me.
as I said, it's been a while since this does not work for me, as for a date, well, the log I gave you comes from yesterday's GIT (27-05-11) I'm building latest one with debug on to give you more details

Hi, im suspecting that team xbmc might have made some changes that aren't fully realised on the 64bit version (I've also run the plugin on nightly from 27-07-11 before and there was no issues). But please provide a full debug log with both xbmc and the plugins debug mode enabled.

thanks Smile

not really good at this but looks like it doesn't find french translations?

Well the plugin doesnt have a french translation, but that shouldnt matter. More importantly you didnt upload a full debug log.. it should contain all info from startup of xbmc with the plugins debug mode enabled (can be found under the plugins advanced settings tab).
heres the full debug: http://pastebin.com/YJFtRrLK

Hmmm

Code:
12:55:52 T:139994002429696 M:3283759104  NOTICE: YouTube-2.2.4 ARGV: ['plugin://plugin.video.youtube/', [b]'-1'[/b], '?path=/root/search&login=false&store=searches&']

That line is the most interesting for some reason xbmc is starting the plugin with the -1 "handle" (the value should've been 0) which doesn't allow for file listings. Since you're using the confluence skin this seems strange. In any case it's not something we can control, but a problem with the latest nightly (as suspected), try escalating this issue with Team XBMC by creating a trac ticket here: http://trac.xbmc.org/
like I said, in 2.2.3 it used to happen also, so this is old bug. For creating a ticket, I'm not good at this, with everything I gave you, can you open one? It will probably be better than what I would do Wink

edit: BTW if you guys want me to make you a french translation for this, just send me the stings Big Grin
