Release YouTube to KODI library
#1
YouTube to KODI library, 0.1.1 [Extends YouTube plugin]
(greatly inspired by: YoutubeLibrary)

Purpose:
To import YouTube channels as TV-shows.
(support for music videos,movies and selective playlists coming later)

You'll need to generate your own YouTube API key (Guide here)

Kodi Leia v18 :GitHub link
Kodi Matrix v19: GitHub link

if you plan to add both playlists and the main channel, add playlists first or they'll be scanned to the main channel, playlist items already scanned to the main channel won't get scanned to playlist-channel and vise versa)





(yeah I have no idea why they decided to flag it as "age-restricted")


default paths to use for video source:
 TV-shows:
special://profile/library/series
 Music videos:
special://profile/library/music_videos

Could you consider adding support for Media Import via this Extention point?

Thank you for your contribution. Smile

A couple of minor issues..

1. Your "Guide" link is being hijacked.
2. Koditips is banned from this forum due to their promotion of piracy enabled add-ons

Could you please remove the "Guide" link and provide an alternative set of instructions if required. Also the link on your github page.

Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

Actually the API Key Instructions are in Post #3 of the Official YouTube thread here (since 2017): https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid...pid2681560

And Post #3 now links to the YouTube addon Wiki on GitHub here: https://github.com/jdf76/plugin.video.yo...l-API-Keys

It would be best if you update the link in your post again, because those instructions are no longer valid Smile

Superb! Can't wait for the Leila version!

Well it looks like the Python2 version has to be completely rewritten in chunks as the syntax is more different than i anticipated, probably not getting much done till Friday...

edit: ^this was a lie btw, turned out i was making it harder than it was...

Currently stuck at getting my index database working, it loads it just fine but only once... after that it starts throwing errors when attempted to read it again. Also the fact that i lost my apartment and car keys so... i'll be cleaning the house until i find them... 

#This should be working but it isn't!
if os.path.isfile(config_file):
    with open(config_file, u'r') as f:
        CONFIG = json.load(f)
        f.close()

Good news:
Finally figured out what the problem was(need to read in binary), expect v18 soon, just a few minor bugs left.

Leia version here:
https://github.com/evantaur/plugin.youtu.../tree/Leia

adding shows should work, refresh is still broken but should be easily fixed, just wanted this out for you guys to test.

edit: refresh should be working again, no more testing for me cause of
"The request cannot be completed because you have exceeded your quota."

Works great, although there were some issues where episodes were duplicated after i added them. I had to re-scrape the YouTube channels episodes to fix it.

Leia and Matrix are both v0.0.3 now... this means that basic functions SHOULD be working now, such as adding and managing YouTube channels, and keeping them automatically updated. There are some visual bugs left(leia version list order is quite random for some reason) but i'll fix them in the future.

Tell me if you encounter any problems.
