Looks like youtube changed something. The userscript I use to play youtube videos with the internal video player doesn't work anymore either. So this package needs to be updated. Trizen, will take a look into it?

I can't stream any videos with this at all anymore since a few days back. Could it be an issue with new mplayer?

When I pause for a few minutes and resume playback, mplayer quits in the middle of the video.
I tried changing cache settings, but it didn't help.
I always have to use -idle to find out at what time the video quit.

Also is there a way to replay the video once it's over?
When I use -loop 0 it seems to redownload the entire file and -idle doesn't allow skipping back.

Thanks a lot, that was fast, I've replaced mplayer2-git with mplayer2 from community and the problem is solved.

Are you using mplayer2-git? There is the problem...

Hi, the script is great
There's one problem, after I watch one video it becomes kind of crazy, it keeps showing different results every one second, and no matter what I write at prompt, it gets erased every second too.
I dont't know if there's something wrong whith my box configuration or if it's a bug.

You are right, something was wrong. Now everything should work fine...

With youtube-downloader I always get an option to download 240p videos, so they are available. But it's forbidden to stream them? I don't completely understand, sorry. But mp4 instead of flv also helps, so thanks for that!

1. I'm not sure
2. 240p (itag=5) is forbidden by Youtube, so I added support for 360p MP4 which is smaller than 360p FLV (MP4=6MB, FLV=7.1MB) (-2 to activate)
