Great script. Thank you !
I have some question. Is it possible to make a search in different languages ? Not only in English. I'm actually interested in Russian keyboard layout.

To those requesting higher quality...
Unfortunately, I haven't had my XBOX with me, I'm traveling on business trip for a few months so I can't test these changes.
Here's something you can try if you are technically inclined:
in the youtube.py file, on line 85... change the line to:
self.video_url = self.base_url + '/?fmt=18&v=%s'
The upload the file to your YouTube3 scripts folder
I haven't tested to see if this results in a higher quality format. This would hard-code to always try and use the higher quality, as far as I know. If anyone tries this and it works, please let me know and I will include an updated release.

If i cancel it before it has had time to complete it will stay in the scrips but as soon as i select anything it crashes.
i have this same problem only with intrepid

I've been using v3.2 of the script on Linux (Mythdora and Atlantis) with great results. Many thanks for an excellent script.
The only issue I had was the same as watty, where the buttons (search, feeds, etc) overlapped the thumbs and descriptions. This was fixed if the <width> and <height> tags in youtube.xml were placed with the individual button parameters, as they weren't inherited from the group.
I found that to get high quality I also needed to add fmt=18 to line 84 of youtube.py as:
self.stream_url = self.base_url + '/get_video?video_id=%s&t=%s&fmt=18'
This had the unexpected bonus of decreasing the buffering time.

I'm very glad you got it working on Linux. If you like, you can e-mail me your changes or provide them to me, I can add that to a new release and give you full credit. Up to you.
Thanks & Regards,

Can't get it to work on my xbox so far. I did a fresh install of xbmc today (latest t3ch build) and put the youtube script v3.2 on it. When running the script, however, I see the script's main screen for like half a second and then it just closes, without any feedback.
The xbmc.log says this:
Any ideas, anyone?

It looks like this script now works in the newest version of the svn on linux. It wasnt working (for me, at least) with the Atlantis release.

After trying it out some more though, in linux at least all the videos have a video lag. The audio is pretty far out of sync.
