I believe youtube sends them out at a predefined quality, for bandwidth i assume. But you can choose in your profile to get high quality videos (If available).

But also without the need for profile/settings is that you can append "&fmt=6" or "&fmt18" without the quotes, to a youtube video url, and you should get better quality.

Probably slready in the script anyway, but thought i'd point it out.

Nice work! It doesn't seem to play back video on windows build, but that may be something on the XBMC side (it seems to fail to identify the flv in the ffmpeg decoder).

Cheers,
Jonathan

jmarshall,

I am able to play back video fine on Atlantis 4 Windows, although I notice buffering takes considerably longer on the windows side versus my xbox.

shtas,

this script is tested on the 08-25 build of xbmc for Xbox, and Atlantis 4 for Windows. It sounds like you need to upgrade your build with the latest developer build

You do realize jmarshall actually programs a great deal of XBMC and would be considered one of if not the main coder currently so we can assume his build is pretty much up to date Smile

thanks it helped. Your script is really great thing, at least it is possible to navigate beetwen multiply pages. But i have a little question, is it possible to sort video, e.g. after searching, in alfabetic order?

No, it's not possible in current version. I'm just wondering why you want the results in alphabetical order, are you having trouble finding the result you are looking for?
