There are a bunch of commits all mixed in together against
6.8.x which include a switch to Python 3.
Hopefully they untangle it and make
6.8 Python 2 again before release but if not it might mean buying new hardware to update from Odroid C2 to Odroid C4 in order to run CoreELEC. Lame.

### Expected Behavior
Video's play as normal.
### Current Behavior
Since this morning (Europe timezone), the Youtube plugin is unable to play any video's wth the error stating "Content not available on this app". Everything was working fine yesterday evening and into the night.
Disabling/enabling InputStream Adaptive for video playback makes no difference.
### Steps to Reproduce
Please provide detailed steps for reproducing the issue.
1. Try to play any video (e.g. from your subscription feed).
2. Get the error.
Alpha release appears to have resolved the majority of the issues so far:
Not in Stable branch (yet), so leaving the issue open until pushed to Stable branch.
**Potential (manual) Workaround(s):**
@RNavega provided a fix that seems to work for now:
Specifically, the "payload" section seems to be the fix.
Another version of the fix to video_info.py which seems to be more reliable:
Python 3 is part of Kodi 19-Matrix. We are already at Kodi Omega 21.
Upgrade your hardware or you need to stay with Kodi Leia.
It looks like at the end of the day it should be possible to disentangle Python 3 from these patches and have a working version for Leia. However it may not end up in any repos but be something people have to do for themselves.
I tried a few of the edits mentioned (
https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=356934&page=120 ) to fix this on my N2. But they failed. What fixed it was a newer version - Release 7.x.x-dev · anxdpanic/plugin.video.youtube · GitHub. I installed from zip plugin.video.youtube-7.0.2.alpha5.zip and all back to normal
