Unfortunately it seems YouTube made some changes to their API.
I'm from Germany and I'm not able to play some videos via the WD YouTube feature anymore. It seems that all videos/channels by American users are blocked - like http://www.youtube.com/user/NBA
. I only get a black screen and after that the endless blue circle with every video.
I only found a German news regarding this topic at the moment: http://stadt-bremerhaven.de/youtube-sperrt-weiter-aus-proxy-erweiterungen-machtlos/
So I will try to translate it:
"Until now, when a user opened a blocked video an addon like ProxTube called this video via an proxy. But the video itself was loaded via the direct connection and not via the proxy. Now YouTube added a feature that saves the proxy-ip in the streaming-link of the video.
So when the proxy called the video the proxy-ip was saved in the streaming-link. The player now opens this streaming-link via the direct connection but receives an "404 Not Found" error, as the original ip (proxy) is not the same like player-ip (user-ip)."
I think this is the reason for my issues now.
Do other users also have similar problems now?
Any ideas for a fix?
Moved on to the RaspberryPi + xbian (XBMC).
Thank you all for 2 great years and all your work to provide such fantastic firmware. Also a big thank you to the guys in the DD thread for all their ongoing support.
Good luck to all of you and perhaps we will see us in any Raspberry forum, cheers
