Great

Its one of the best versions of YouTube on Kodi I've seen, but there is room for improvement.

  1. Wow, thank you for posting a version of that actually completely works. I have tried so many different versions and had it broken for months, it’s like one of the only addons I care about working too. Cheers

    • lol no problem buddy. Please read the note at the top of the video where I address that very same issue you’re talking about!

    • I can’t get any YouTube to work. It is there I can open it and I can click on anything and it works fine. However when I click on SEARCH it comes back
      YOUTUBE ERROR. check log for more information

      I’m using 5.3.4. And the log highest version is 5.2.1

      Worked before but I did a fresh start and had to reinstall repo

  2. I followed the instructions but all I can see is caz wizard

  3. I just installed it thanks. In the add on info should I leave it set to auto update or can that bring me to a bad version. Also on a android box that kodi was downloaded to and not what I think a build is, do I need to do the force stop

    • Yes turn off auto update for YouTube, and force stopping is necessary for all builds. This option is best to get in the settings outside of KODI.

  4. Sorry im kind of new at this. So only on a android box force stop is necessary, Can you explain the process. And then once installed auto update must stay off. There will ever be an
    update? thanks in advance

  5. What do I do when YouTube version 5.1.20.4 is not a selection option?. Numerous other options except that one! Thankyouand regards

    • don’t use any other option other than the one in my repo which is v5.3.8 right now…… other repos versions do not work.

  6. this one fix the kodi limit time quota, hope next update dont give problem

  7. I have the 5.3.8 updated version and it just keeps telling me “bad request” when I try anything youtube related. Any advice?

    • wipe kodi and re-install this because sometimes the old version isn’t properly updated and it causes an issue. Mine is working tho…

  8. Wow that was crazy to install on Apollo AiOne 3.8 … Likely 10 time easier on the Beast or NoLimits

  9. It’s me again I have YOUTUBE installed 5.3.8 and it was working. Now when I try to searcher gives me a BAD REQEST ERROR …. help me please. Anyone else having same problem

  10. Hi I have two builds. One within kodi one within spmc. Various sections within these builds link to youtube. For example kids sections etc. Will replacing the YouTube in the builds break these links or will they still function. ?

  11. Help needed on kodi, Exodus not loading, I’ve uninstalked and re installed still no luck

    • exodus has been having issues for the past few days. the best i can tell you is to make sure have the exodus repo installed (it’s available in the add on repo section of my repo) and to use another option if the problem persist. it’s nothng you can do past that as the developer Lambda needs to fix the issue. He did push an update a few days go

  12. Hi,anyone else has iasue with the plugin since about 2 days? When i try to open yt, i get a msg that error occured,nothing else. I’m running most recent ubuntu.
    Log does not help me at all. Do you have any idea?

    • This is a first. Is this happening to all your devices…. If not, try clearing your kodi and installing it on a fresh installed kodi

      • I just have only 1 device so I couldn’t make a comparison. My guess is, maybe an ubuntu/kodi update screwed up something. Unfortunately I did not make note about the packes during my last update of OS.

  13. yup having the same issue — since upgrading to Kodi v17.0 not able to really uninstall as there are lots of addon dependencies 🙂 so…….

  14. Having the exact same issue since kodi v17 update. Not able to uninstall / reinstall plugin unless i uninstall the whole 20+ other addons using this as well 🙂

  15. Can play many videos, but just as many says “no streams found”

  16. I’m now getting “bad request” every time I try to play a video that uses youtube

  17. Thanks man. With this version and SPMC 16.6, now I can enjoy 1080p streams from youtube.

  18. my kodi youtbe adon doesn’t work (16.1 ver.)

    new update ok but stream doesnt exit

  19. So you need VPN to make this work? It doesn’t work for me.
