Re: YouTube

Gone again after one day. I give up on them. They're pushing their new streaming service and I suspect that has something to do with the problems.

Re: YouTube

Is youtube.groovy plugin currently working under v2 ?

Not sure what I am doing wrong.

Re: YouTube

The youtube plugin was working with V2 until youtube made their most recent changes. They added more adverts and a premium streaming service which is a paid service. Serviio has been the only server that I used for years. I haven't used any others. I will check the forum on others to see if they are broke as well.

Re: YouTube

I've uploaded a new version of the plugin.

It doesn't work with all videos (some use encrypted signature which I haven't got to code around yet), but hopefully works for most videos.

Re: YouTube

Thank you Zip! It works with all that I tested so far.

My primary source of on line entertainment is back. I actually use this more than Amazon and Directv.

Re: YouTube

Thank you, Petr!
I watch Youtube content only via TV and only in your plugin for Serviio :D Other methods are inconvenient for me.

Re: YouTube

I don't expect to get a fix for this any time soon. I would personally give youtube some time to make all of their changes/updates to get the platform stable before wasting much time on it.

Re: YouTube

Just to clarify, is there currently a way to warch a YouTube video via Serviio? I have spent 2+ hours reading this and other forums but there are no clear instructions on how to set this up in 2020. @zip please provide a download link to the youtube plugin as its impossible to find on this forum.

Good Day All.

I hope all are safe from Covid-19.

The last Youtube changes are allowing the latest Serviio Youtube plugin to work again.

:P

Re: YouTube

In answer to a private message that I received. I am posting here for everyone to see. The plugin still isn't fully functional. I run the server on windows 10 and windows 7 systems. The thumbnail for one or two playlists might show up but the contents of the playlists are missing.

When adding a playlist it only shows the first clip?

Re: YouTube

Youtube has actually been having problems since the middle of last year. They are making numerous changes to monitize their services. They now have a pay/streaming service and are now inserting adverts at the beginning of and in the middle of videos. I strongly suspect that they are not done with their changes. The plugin might be changed to handle the current conditions only to have youtube break it again.

Re: YouTube

I had the same error on logs:

[FeedUpdaterWorker] An error occured while parsing the online resource 'https://...', will try again soon: Unexpected error while invoking plugin (YouTube): Text must not be null or empty
...

To solve I have added my own APIKEY from my Google Developer Account.
The problem is that the current APIKEY included into the file "Youtube.goovy"

  Code:
final api_key = "AIzaSyCbFQoC....SqGVE243q0"


reaches the limit of 10000 calls per day, because all of us are been using this APIKEY.

Solution:

1. I have had to learn how to create my own APIKEY on Google and activate it.

https://www.slickremix.com/docs/get-api-key-for-youtube/

2. Then I have edited the Youtube.groovy file replacing api_key with mine.

This works form me! :D

Now the Serviio.log file only shows this warning:
[WebResourceParser] Plugin YouTube returned no value for resource item 'null'
on every online resource, but it captures the online source.

Thanks!
