Make sure you are on the latest version of the youtube addon (currently 2.9.0).
Also you should have upgraded your XBMC version to 11.0 Eden (from http://xbmc.org/download/). I think the new versions won't work on 10.1 Dharma

Try uninstalling and reinstalling the youtube add-on.

Yes, its because there is a conflict with the way it was written. It was either written for a different operating system or because xbmc seems to have been prodominately been written for Mac.

If your running Windows XP, of Windows 7. Do the following:

1. Download notepad ++ http://notepad-plus-plus.org/download/

2. Search of - folder options, in the start menu, or follow the prompts in control panel.

3. Select the - View, tab. Then in - Hidden files and folders, select - show hidden files, folders, or drivers.

4. open your (user) folder.

5. Open the folder - AppData, Roaming, XBMC, addons, plugin.video.youtube
C:\Users\ (enter your user/folder name here) \AppData\Roaming\XBMC\addons\plugin.video.youtube

6. Right click on - YouTubePlayer.py
add select - Edit with notepad++

7. If you are using XP, add a # to the beginning of the statement on line - 302

If its Windows 7, add a # to the beginning of the statement on line - 801

8. Save and exit.

Now you should be error free when running xbmc, while loading youtube - through the trailer section.

Does it actually download trailers or stream them like the current youtube plug-in does.
