Hi
I've copied the YouTubePlayer.py file shown in mj71's post but the odd file still won't play. They won't play through the YouTube plugin either but will play OK in a browser. Could someone who understands log files have a look at this one and tell me what's causing the error please?

Ok what you need to do is download this file and extract it so you have YouTubePlayer.py file.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/gl9y4junyzi1e84/YouTubePlayer.rar

Then you need to get it onto your Ouya (somewhere you can find it). I normally use downloads folder. Then using Root Explorer or any other file manager that gives root access copy the file (YouTubePlayer.py) into the directory containing Youtube addon.

I had to reinstall xbmc (I use Beyond Xbmc) to try this and the directory you are looking for is

/data/media/android/data/tv.ouya.xbmc/files/.xbmc/addons/plugin.video.youtube. Put the file in here. Your on the right track if it asks you do you want to overwrite existing file.

Let me know if you get stuck or if it works.

Anyone have this working on Gotham? I tried installing the zip in the first post but am getting the dreaded "dependencies not met" error...

Awesome add-on. But is not compatible with Gotham. It depends on xbmc.python version 1.0. I changed the version in the addons.xml. That way it installed but is giving some python related errors when trying to browse through.

The patched youtube.py wasnt working for me so this addon was giving me script errors with a lot of videos i was trying to play
Turns out it was the vevo content issue

Ive managed to get it working with the patch from here https://code.google.com/p/youtubexbmc/issues/detail?id=95 using the youtubeplayer.py forom post #217

As always,if you want to try this,then make a copy of your original file first incase you want to revert back

Hope this helps with those having vevo issues

Added to first post
Thx...this worked for me.

Unfortunately the developer isnt from here,iyt was just something i found as mentioned in the first thread so if it breaks,im not sure how it will get fixed :(

Maybe try to get in touch with the developer

Im assuming its because you are using gotham,its working on frodo,so the addon is working,its gotham and the compatability thats the problem

Its a shame if it doesnt get updated :(

Or maybe one of the devs here knows what needs to be updated to make it work,but really its someone elses addon

Hi mj71,

I took the latest code after all the youtube patches and modified so that it will work on Gotham. If you want you can add it to the first page. Its been tested by a few users and seems to work.

Let me know if I need to do something for this. The link to the plugin is https://www.dropbox.com/s/ctht8k4gndfyyr2/plugin.video.musicvideojukebox.zip

Thanks,
