Since the reported link is working and there are no comments since my last request I am planning to close this bug report. As of 24th of November if there is no new information in relation to this bug report it will be considered fixed.

If the problem is still present after the bug report is closed, please feel free to reopen it.

Thank you.

As there is now fix for bug #36888, could you report if there are still issues with some YouTube videos related to this fix?

I'm able to play the URL in the last comment with Totem plugin in Trisquel 5.5.

Hi, just tested with rev314 on Firefox 15.0, Fedora 17. Wprk for some videos and not for others. For example,


This works in totem-vegas but not on LM with the totem plugin, see only black screen while audio plays in the background.Don't know whether it might have something to do with bug 36888

P.S. I am the same guy who filed bug 36888 (but not the person who filed this one)

It is fixed in trunk and the stable branch (0.0.12). The svn builds are updated. The stable one is with version 0.0.12-2, for which I will release a tarball tonight or tomorrow.

Thanks for reporting and proposing a work-around. I was unavailable due to very personal reasons and could not be part of the discussion at the Trisquel's mailing list and take some action.

I'll try to fix the bug and release a bug-fix release as soon as possible.

I don't use Linterna, but people on the Trisquel's English forum are reporting that Youtube video's aren't playing.  This is most probably because now every video URL requires a signature to be appended to it.

I write my own Youtube video downloader and wasn't working as of today.  I use the variable "url_encoded_fmt_stream_map" to generate HTML anchors to the video files.  There's new variable called "sig" in url_encoded_fmt_stream_map.  I now append "&signature=" + the value of sig to every video's URL and it works.

I hope I was useful!
