Ask Kodi youtube plugin author to fix their addon?

Or use Yatse addon to workaround How to install and configure Yatse Add-on for Kodi

I have no control over that plugin.

I’ve installed the Yatse addon, but I’m getting an error. Here’s an extraction of the KODI logfile:

That’s unfortunate, you can either update to Kodi 19, use version 2.4.5 of the plugin or have Kodi addon author fix it’s addon.

Where/how can I get version 2.4.5 of the plugin?

Okay, I’ve installed v2.4.5, it says “YATZE KODI HELPER SCRIPT Resolving shared media”, but unfortunately video streaming via “share with Play in Media Centre” is stuttering/not starting, too.

Any idea? Please don’t say “Upgrade KODI”, never change a running system, you know :slight_smile:

What do you expect from me ? ')

I’m not a magician I can’t fix an old unsupported Kodi issue.

My workaround seems to now require Python 3.6 so Kodi 19.

It’s already a miracle that I have a workaround.

In the end is Kodi that plays the video not Yatse.
