procrastinator Wrote:Great to see an updated YouTube plugin. I haven't used it extensively, but I like it, and so far I can say that it certainly looks like the search results make a lot more sense than the original plugin! Great work so far.
Anyway, first off I just wanted to add a feature request: Would it be possible to have a feature to search against a particular user? For example you could do a search for "the IT crowd" against the user "4oDcomedy", which would mean that the results you'd get would all be from the channel that creates the program, and would be full episodes rather than clips.
Secondly, I'm also getting the "login failed" error when I attempt to watch certain videos from 4oD (UK restricted rtmpe streams) that normally present an age warning (example). I tried a few different ones without success but, as I say, I've not used the plugin extensively yet. I did also try some other videos from 4oD that would not provide an age warning (example: this one) which started playing OK, but after a minute or two these would stop playing by themselves. This reminded me of what happened to BBC iPlayer videos before rtmpe streams were supported in that plugin. I also tried a video which I don't believe would be using rtmpe or age restrictions, and that one worked absolutely fine (it was this one).
full debug log, attempting access of the example videos above:
Ah, we had only found one video which used rtmpe, were it not for that video we wouldn't even have it in the plugin.
We will investigate.
BlueCop Wrote:I was curious is vevo music video content is possible? I think they removed their content from the API a while back. I haven't looked at your code so don't know what you guys are using but just putting in a request if possible. I was looking into making one specifically for vevos site but all their distrobution is still by YouTubes network.We have tested with the VEVO account, so it should work.
Thanks for the plugin.
Try this. Subscribe to the VEVO user. Open the context menu on the VEVO folder, and change the subscription type to "Favorites".
If this doesn't give you what you want, could you give me a link to a youtube page that contains the video list you want.
It is really nice that you have added the playlists in. It would be really awesome if I could queue up a whole playlist from the context menu. I think bluecop is building such queues in the southpark plugin if you need sample code.
That should actually work, though there is no context menu for it. But i'm pretty sure i saw a patch that disabled queuing folders in plugins because it might cause and endless loop.
But even if that is the case it shouldn't be too hard to add it to the folders that don't continue to infinity.
