Can't thank you enough for 2024300 (post) !!!

I have done work the last days specifically putting together the set of parameters that will be passed by Rob'sVideoExtras on each search string to your Youtube and Vimeo plugins, so we can find the most accurate material in the most efficient way, with minimum search and number of entries retrieved. I am facing a blocker atm with regards to certain parameters such as type (2D or 3D), quality (HD, 4K) or video length (medium and long videos) when they are included within the search string. The results via the Youtube plugin and via Youtube website are consistently different.

For instance, requesting Youtube website the following string [allintitle:thor broll|"b roll",hd,short] normally retrieves only HD B-Roll videos for the movie 'Thor' which are less than 4 min duration. It appears the plugin's request is treating all terms after the comma as mere search terms and not as filter parameter, thus these filters [,<parameter1>,<parameter2>,...,parameterN] are not doing their job as desired. The result is that it is not possible to conduct cleaner queries for this specific material, currently ending in no results at all (because of the impossibility to find all these terms as written terms within the title) or ending in too much rubbish, irrelevant, spam, poor or unofficial videos posted by film fans and not by proper channels, professionals or media companies.

Relevant after-comma filter parameters would be:
[,hd] (only retrieve HD)
[,3d] (only retrieve HD)
[,spherical] (only retrieve 360º),
[,4k] (only retrieve 4k),
[,new] (only new videos),
[,medium, long] (only duration above 4 min)

One would tend to think there is a mishandling by the plugin however, after reviewing, I can see both queries being properly escaped and encoded:
Code:
Youtube website: ?search_query=allintitle%3Athor+broll%7C"b+roll"%2Chd%2Cshort
Youtube plugin: ?q=allintitle%3Athor+broll%7C%22b+roll%22%2Chd%2Cshort

Do you see a way we could overcome this or pass these keys as filters and prevent the plug-in from not recognising terms located immediately after a comma as global filter parameters to be applied to the query?
I only answer once here, after that please all YouTube related stuff in the YouTube thread Wink

No problem and you're welcome. The search query works differently as you may expect:

Also see the issue tracker on GitHub:
https://github.com/bromix/plugin.video.y.../issues/97

The addon doesn't support these properties yet because it requires some work and time to implement and test. But it's on my todo of things Wink
