I can tell you when i watched a video on kodi then looked for it on my TV it wasn't there. that was about 1 week or so ago.
Yeah, so Im not quite sure what Spider is referring to in his previous posts:

You can fix this yourself if you go your privacy options in this link and enable it.

If it doesn't work after that then you should logout and login again to YouTube.
If it still doesn't work recheck your settings.
Totally fixable by you and no one else here.
It's in the list to be looked at, so it will be looked at. Unfortunately i can't give you a date or time when it will be fixed, but I'm going to give it my best shot.
No problem, I was just trying to ascertain whether Spider had a valid solution or not, because his posts were quite insistent that our settings were wrong...
I can confirm that History does not work, as *Spider* suggests it does.

Only videos viewed via youtube.com are visible in History in the addon. No videos viewed via the addon are available in History in the addon or on youtube.com.

I have the Youtube Search History and Youtube Watch History enabled in the Privacy Check up > 5. Personalise your Google experience in https://myaccount.google.com/privacycheckup/

I have had a look trough the API examples on https://github.com/youtube and https://developers.google.com/youtube/v3/code_samples/ and I don't believe that History is available via the API.
Like dnairb said, the History is not available via the API. I've tried it to put the video_id directly in the playlist via the API.

On https://developers.google.com/youtube/v3...ist#try-it you can get your related playlist_ids. There I was looking for the watchHistory.
GET https://www.googleapis.com/youtube/v3/channels?part=contentDetails&mine=true&key={YOUR_API_KEY}

Then I tried to add a video to the list:
POST https://www.googleapis.com/youtube/v3/playlistItems?part=snippet&key={YOUR_API_KEY}

"snippet": {
  "playlistId": watchHistory_ID,
  "resourceId": {
   "videoId": video_id,
   "kind": "youtube#video"

With this I get the error "You do not have permission to execute this method."
Authorized with "https://www.googleapis.com/auth/youtube"

Maybe there is another way to do it with the API but I don't get any other idea. I think this is why bromix tried to "open" the video as browser over http://www.youtube.com/tv. Maybe only this request is changed from youtube.

I double checked my history again in Kodi and all history is inbound from external sources only.
Unsure as to how I was mixed up in my assessments.
Sorry for the confusion. I will rest up all weekend and hopefully regain my sanity again...
Thanks for clarifying.
Final issue tally.

1. Watch later list does NOT remove the actual video from the list (automated or otherwise)
2. Age restriction blocks people from watching the Video.
3. Adding channels to "KODI favorites" doesn't auto-update
4. My Subscriptions does NOT sort by date
5. Incorrect information on addon listing. Grammar or Spelling incorrect. <-- Already Completed and will be released on the next version.. JDF 4/1/16
6. Issue with sorting on "My Subscriptions"
7. Issue with History. Watched Videos here are not added to your history. *may not be possible*

Over the next couple mins i'll be transition over to a new thread since we are at almost 260 pages. Once i am ready to go i'll setup the new thread and post the link over here.

Thank you for your help!

THANKS for all your help jdf76, as well as Bromix, Kolifanes, and everyone else who has helped with coding, info, and fixes here Nod Angel
