[RELEASE] YouTube Channels (Video Plugin) Addon
(2020-04-10, 16:04)harlekin Wrote: Github user mintsoft fixed natko1412's Youtube Channels plugin for Kodi version 18+ in september of last year. I just found out and wanted to share it.

See:
https://github.com/natko1412/repo.natko1412/pull/7

You can use your old install (or copy over your plugin folder and your addon data folder for ytchannels to a new install) and just replace the default.py with the newer one you find here:
https://github.com/mintsoft/repo.natko14...ytchannels

Or just fresh install the entire plugin from that youtube fork.

4K videoplayback works as well. Smile

(Hurray! Smile )

Still works, although you now have to also supply your own youtube api key. Smile (Too many people use it with the default one, so it hits its access limit.)
see: https://github.com/natko1412/repo.natko1412/issues/8

If you dont know how to get one - follow this not so decently made youtube tutorial. Wink

link removed due to banned addons (wiki) on the install shown in the video. An alternate suggestion for tutorials and information is in the next post below

As the link above has a couple of visuals including banned addons (wiki) on the screen, I offer an alternative (as their presence precludes links to the video from the forum here):

They are from the YouTube addon thread .

Related to the above. I'm not the original author of this addon, however I've been maintaining it for my personal use outside of the Natko repo. As far as I understand the rules, there shouldn't be any problem if I attempt to submit this into the official Kodi extensions repository as it's not a pirating addon or similiar?

Are there a enough people who still use this extension to make it worth my while submitting my patched version and also adding UI settings to get your own API key?

I've also just made it so that the API key is in the settings on my fork rather than hardcoded so you can "type" (however you want to do that) your API key into the settings page instead of changing the code

@mint - no, given this addon appears to have been abandoned, there should be no issue with you forking it, taking over and submitting it.

When you do please ensure to describe that history, but there would be no issue with regards to the rules.

Ah cool, I'm having a stab at getting it into the main repo at the moment. The review process has highlighted quite a lot of things wrong so it might take a few days, but we'll see Smile

Think I'm basically there now. I'll see if this gets in, if it does I'll do another update shortly to force users to set their YouTube API Key. I've defaulted the settings to use the same one as is in the old version, however I doubt that works for basically anyone anymore.

Cool, this has just been released to the main repository now (https://kodi.tv/addon/plugins-video-add-...e-channels)

I have to say thanks to https://github.com/yeahme49 who did basically all of the tidying up work getting this ready and adding matrix support! The matrix PR hasn't been merged yet, however I'm hoping some time today it will.

Matrix support is in

There's a few more changes incoming:
A slightly changed logo
Descriptions and durations on videos
Fixed a bug with sorting as well
Maximum page size of 50 for consistency with the YouTube API
