CNN Youtube Channel   

Postby biomedica » Fri May 20, 2011 10:18 am

Hi,

I use the Youtube subscriptions on my box and I recently found out that CNN has its own Youtube channel which I promptly subscribed. It is interesting that the videos are shown on my box by going to my subscriptions, however when I try to play them it takes a little bit and they never play. By going online, it seems that they use an embedded player on youtube. Has anyone tried to make this work on the boxes? Also, the videos do not play on my ipod touch.

Are you subscribed to http://www.youtube.com/user/CNNInternational?

I'll give it a try, but it should work with Youtube Subscriptions...

Edit: Just tested it and it works for me...
If it still doesn't work, send me your Youtube config settings and the output of /tmp/umsp-log.txt

No, I was actually subscribed to http://www.youtube.com/user/CNN and also the CNNMoney which didn't work. I will try your suggestion. Thanks.

I tried the CNN link, and this is what I got:
Code: Select all
"CNN: May 21, 2011 Doomsday?"
The uploader has not made this video available in your country.


Since Youtube checks your country by IP, the only solution to see these videos would be to use a VPN/proxy based in the US, sorry...

:lol: You can't see CNNInternational in the US? That's a good one!
So, regular CNN doesn't work for you with Youtube Subscriptions from inside the US?
It will be difficult for me to troubleshoot this without access, but you can try this:
1. Edit /tmp/umsp-plugins/youtube-subscriptions/youtube-subscriptions-proxy.php and set debugging to L_ALL instead of L_WARNING
2. Try to view the video you want
3. Post back the contents of /tmp/umsp-log.txt

Not sure it will help, but it's worth a shot...

Also - you can try this - favorite a clip from the CNN channel and try to view it through regular Youtube/YoutubeHD

Yeah, I will do that later when I get home. But, the thing is that when I go online even with my laptop it tells me that there is an embedded player made by Turner Inc. which plays the videos from CNN on the Youtube. I guess it is a way for them to code everything. lol.

Didn't know youtube allowed that... That means we have to expect other channels not to work...
