YoutubeHD Issue - The media format is not supported.   

Postby molsongolden01 » Sat Mar 15, 2014 10:24 am

Hi,
I am new and I just loaded the 1.05.04_B_WDLXTV.COM_WDLXTV_PLUS-0.5.1.1 on my WD Live Plus device. It installed perfect… I then go to load YouTube Videos and many say that you cannot play on TV connected device. So I researched and seen that you need to enable YouTubeHD. I followed all the instructions and now I go to play most videos and get a new message.

The media format is not supported. I can play the regular videos that I could before the YoutubeHD ok but not the other ones. I checked and many post are old regarding this. I did see someone show the get proxies so hope this means something.

Please any help would be appreciated !!

What videos are you having trouble playing? I don't recall having many (if any) problems playing any youtube videos, even 1080P ones and I'm using the same firmware you are.

It looks like the ones I could not play that said they were not playable for tv connected devices are the ones. Before I enabled YoutubeHD.

and yes it is activated. It shows on the screen (logo) and the switcher shows HD in config file.

My wife wants to watch ABBA - take a chance on me (not my choice)and it does not play.

Also the the official video of Capital Cities - Safe and sound...

Many I try give that message....

FYI... If I update to the real latest firmware, they play no problem but the Youtube Interface sucks big time...

Can you actually play a youtube video with the latest firmware WITHOUT it rebooting the device? I had been using the official latest firmware for a while but went back to wdlxtv firmware because Youtube was absolutely unusable! Everytime it finished a video, BAM! My WDTV LIVE PLUS would reboot! Got sick of it so I went back and I'm glad I did. If it's working for you I'd be curious to know why it wasn't working for me. I even did a factory reset and still didn't fix it. So again, I went back to the wdlxtv firmware.

Hold on guys - there are several types of youtube videos - regular videos and music videos. Music videos (especially from VEVO channels) are a particular headache because youtube implemented a signing algorthim designed to only allow you access if you are using a web browser. They have some javascript code embedded in the page that will compute a signature for you that you must supply in the video's URL. Now, the first iterations were easy to hack, but youtube got smart or desperate and they started to change their signing code much more frequently - I think it currently changes every few hours, so you can't have a static code to calculate the signature (and most command-line tools don't execute javascript code). There are some programs that have overcome this problem (like dentex's Youtube Downloader for Android), but I haven't had the time to implement his changes in our youtube code.

So, for now, youtube playback of protected videos is not possible, sorry. Hopefully I will find the time to finish everything I started one day (so far it looks like I'll have to wait until retirement) :D

Sorry yes the stupid new firmware does reboot the device every time and it does not save previous searches. That is why I loaded the wdlxtv firmware. I only meant that the videos I wanted to play worked with it.

Thanks Mad_ady for the info. I now know I am not crazy !!

Thanks everyone.... I will check back for updates since most videos I want to play are protected....
