In any case, I'll look at it when I get a chance Smile

Version 18.425.0

Changes:
  • Updated youtube-dl core to 2018.4.25

On Kodi repo, pending mirror updates.


RE: [Module] youtube-dl - multi-site playable URL resolver - RKCRLR - 2018-05-11

Would I be able to schedule downloads with this add-on?  I'd like to be able to schedule downloads during nighttime.  
Thanks


RE: [Module] youtube-dl - multi-site playable URL resolver - RKCRLR - 2018-05-11

I installed it and answered my own question.  I does not have the ability to schedule downloads.  

Would it be possible to add the ability to schedule downloads to youtube-dl?  

I live in a rural area and have satellite internet.  My data is metered.  I get 10GB/month during the day but with an additional 50GB/month during the hours of 2 am to 8 am.  
Much of rural America only has access to satellite internet.  Additionally, I've heard that there are cell services around the world that meter data but have additional data during off hours.  

The ability to schedule downloads would be a great advantage to people like us.  

Thanks


RE: [Module] youtube-dl - multi-site playable URL resolver - theGuruWithin - 2018-05-27

Hi Ruuk,

Thank you for all your hard work on this wonderful plugin.  I have been using for quite some time and love it.

I am running Kodi 17.6 and have had problems updating to versions newer than 15.318.0 (which still works great).

After updating to either v 17.518.2 and v 18.425.0 the plugin refuses to download anything. 

I would really appreciate your advice as to why my Kodi 17.6 just doesn't seem compatible with your newer versions.  I would really love to run the latest version.

in Gratitude,
A


RE: [Module] youtube-dl - multi-site playable URL resolver - theGuruWithin - 2018-05-30

Wondering if anyone is still moderating this forum for Youtube-dl.  If so I would really appreciate help in figuring out why i can run old v15.318.0 and not the newer updates?

I don't want to be a nudge but want to know if I am barking up dead tree for help.

in Gratitude,
A


RE: [Module] youtube-dl - multi-site playable URL resolver - Karellen - 2018-05-30

Hello @theGuruWithin

@ruuk hasn't been around for about 3 weeks, nor have I seen him in the developers channels. Not sure where he has got to, but obviously has real life to deal with. Smile

Unfortunately it is a matter of waiting until ruuk becomes active on Kodi again.


RE: [Module] youtube-dl - multi-site playable URL resolver - Steph09 - 2018-06-13

Is there something i should alter in a file or something somewhere as download speeds are really low for me. My internet is capable of 2meg/sec download speeds but i'm only getting 200KBs via this addon.


[Module] youtube-dl - multi-site playable URL resolver - ruuk - 2018-06-13

For some reason, this is the first notification I've gotten from this thread since several posts ago.

In any case:

@Steph09: I don't think there's much you can do about the speed. In my experience many sites simply limit the speed, so your available bandwidth doesn't really matter.

@theGuruWithin: I don't really know what the issue could be without a log. I test every release and don't have any issues.

@RKCRLR: This add-on is primarily intended as a module for other add-ons to use. The download option was merely an easy addition and I don't plan to add anything to it. I'm more likely to remove it because it's more of a support burden for something that has little to do with the primary purpose of the add-on.

 That's too bad since it would really be useful for people in rural areas, but I can imagine the burden of keeping something like this up to date.  

Do you have any suggestions for scheduling YouTube downloads in Kodi or Android?  

Thanks

 Have you looked at the YouTube Library add-on? https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=246110&page=21

I've not used it myself but I am certain that it downloads video from YouTube. I am unsure if it can scheduled though. May be an idea to check the thread out.


RE: [Module] youtube-dl - multi-site playable URL resolver - RKCRLR - 2018-06-30

I tried to install the Youtube Library addon but I'm having some problems (I suspect because the Shield TV is persnickety about permissions).  
However, I got far enough to see that there isn't an option in the menu to schedule a specific download time.  However, it appears close since you can schedule intervals (just not s specific time).  
Thanks for the suggestion.

The download option is a really great feature so it would be awesome if it could be kept supported. Seriously, its one of the best add-ons/features for kodi.

I'm probably adding to the to-do list here but I don't know if you know but downloads are not currently working with YT at the moment. It tries to start, the black box in the top right appears, but stops before the download starts and then nothing happens. It was fine until recently, maybe YT have changed somethings.


RE: [Module] youtube-dl - multi-site playable URL resolver - siliconhippy - 2018-08-24

@ruuk

1. How about inserting a personal API key as in post#3 here:

https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=325740

Any other workarounds for the quota issue?

Is it only YouTube with the quota limit? How about other major sites like Dailymotion, Vimeo and Twitch?

2. I know yours is a module not a plugin, but is there a non-programmer way to use this for live streaming HLS/DASH streams from YouTube and other sites from within an IPTV m3u list, or some way of playing in KODI IPTV Simple Client or iVue2 TV Guide?

I have been asking around and the issue with YouTube plugin seems to be integration with input.adaptive add-on to generate live HLS /DASH streams. Some say problems are partly fixed in Kodi 18 nightlies.

Cheers,😈😈


[Module] youtube-dl - multi-site playable URL resolver - ruuk - 2018-08-24

1) Doesn't apply to this

2) No. Even for it's intended usage, this doesn't play DASH yet.
