Hi, I think straw-viewer-git is the future for this. This gives the [403 forbidden] error due to the restriction on youtube api.

Hi dragos240, Those videos have an encrypted signature which is hard to decrypt, but I see that the developers of youtube-dl figured a way to do it, so I added basic support for this URLs if youtube-dl is installed. However, for some reason, this videos will play only in vlc and mpv, but not in mplayer.

Hi, I'm getting 2 errors. One when attempting to play a video (no options): "mplayer: could not connect to socket mplayer: No such file or directory" And when trying to download a video (-d): HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 403 Forbidden 2014-02-02 22:08:10 ERROR 403: Forbidden. Certain videos appear to work, although this specific one does not: youtube-dl is able to download the video. Any ideas?

Hello Pacce, those videos are specially protected by Youtube and can't be downloaded. If anyone will find some way around this issue, patches are very welcome. Thanks

Hello Trizen! Everything works great, except videos from Vevo or other labels (such as emimusic). When I play those videos, it shows the info and then goes back to video list. Is this something related to my configuration or Vevo channel?
