I've made an experimental commit in revision 240. The cookies processing code in YT is commented and it seems it works fine with Totem 2.32.

There are reports that features that require login (cookies) in  YouTube do not work with Linterna Mágica. For example like buttons. Some users complain about being thrown out of their accounts.

This is caused by the cookies hack required to extract links that work with video plugins.

Tests prove the problems is cookies related.
