Thank you, that fixed it.

I’m new to this forum but have been using Coreelec Kodi for many years, running on Nexbox A95X B7N (2G version).

I’ve recently started having errors playing some videos in the Youtube addon (v6.8.15), with the same issue occurring in Coreelec 9.2.7, 19.2 RC3 and nightlies. The addon has worked fine in the past, and I’m not sure exactly when the problem started as I’ve been away for a few weeks.

In an attempt to fix the problem, I’ve done fresh installs of the above Coreelec versions, installed the Youtube addon and Inputstream Adaptive from the CoreElec Repo, and enabled MPEG-DASH.

I can sign in to Youtube and search for videos ok, but when I try to play some (most) I get an error and a popup saying the video failed to play. I think that the issue may be with 1080 or HD video, as some (possibly lower resolution) videos play fine.

I’ve posted the log to http://ix.io/3vHl and also the dmesg log to http://ix.io/3vHm

The error shown in the log (after the various callbacks) is:
“/storage/.kodi/addons/plugin.video.youtube/resources/lib/youtube_plugin/youtube/helper/signature/cipher.py”, line 93, in _load_javascript
param = int(param)
ValueError: invalid literal for int() with base 10: ‘function(c’
–>End of Python script error report<–

I’m not sure what else to try and would appreciate any assistance in resolving this.

Just after posting this, I found that the developer has released a new version 6.8.16 on Github that seems to have solved the problem. Apologies for not finding this first!
