I recently installed the TubeToTV extenstion for the Chromium browser in Ubuntu 12.04 so that I could send YouTube videos from my laptop to my xmbc Media Center. I was surprised when I got a Playback error message.
I soon found that the issue was not with the TubeToTv extension but with the YouTube (3.1) Plugin on xbmc.
Fortunately a kind fellow called anteo had already stepped in to fix the extension – so I can now play YouTube videos on xbmc and use the TubeToTV extenstion too!
The fix is as follows – open a terminal and shh into your xbmc:
Use the username and IP adddress of your xmbc.
Retrieve two plugins using wget:
wget https://dl.dropbox.com/u/33024933/plugin.video.youtube.zip wget https://dl.dropbox.com/u/33024933/script.module.simple. downloader.zip
Update: The above links are no longer working and so I have uploaded the files to dropbox myself:
Next uninstall the YouTube 3.1 plugin from xbmc and then install the two plugins that you just downloaded.
Many thanks to anteo for the fix!
