As I recall there is a wiki instruction available for installing YouTube as an Add-on for a Vero 4K.
Please could somebody help me with this as I am having no success with YouTube which used to work fine. I have tried using the app again from the Kodi repo on the Vero but I get an error (error 99?) cannot assign requested address.
Could it be blocked by firewall or VPN or similar?
Many thanks. I have asked this question before and received the same answer, for which many thanks.
What I was seeking, however, was a change in the default behaviour so that when I do a new search the results are shown in the required view. What happens now is that once I change the view on a screen it remains with the required setting but if I do a new search I have to start over with the view setting. Can I change the default behaviour for any new search?
I shall try this now. My first Vero 4K is working correctly and has YT 7.02 shown. I switched devices and the Vero 4K on which I have been working still has YT 7.01 and updates tell me it is up to date. Strange!!! Different repo?
I believe the add-on updater will only refresh automatically once per day. If another OSMC box got the update then it should show up in the other either within a day or else if you go to the add-on browsers side menu and tell it to check for updates.
Done all that but still only have 7.0.1 installed. I must have downloaded the 7.0.2 version from the above github link or similar on the other Vero. Whatever I did, I cannot reproduce it here and when I tried to download the file from github it failed with “no connection”. Probably done it wrong so, how do I download the zip file from github please?
What had me stuck was getting this file into my Vero. In the end I downloaded it to my workstation home directory and scp copied it to the Vero, from which I could install as a zip file.
This updated my YT to v7.0.2 as hoped and YT is now playing correctly. I am still having a bit of trouble with the View options but will sort it out in due course.
I have no idea why all this should have been such a pain when the Google hurdles are also added but the end result is worth it; I can watch a one hour long Royal Institution lecture or an opera video without adds and interruptions. Brilliant, so thanks for the help and sorry I made such a meal of it.
