Youtube for Volumio[size=50]BETA[/size] is now available for testing!
You can find it in your Plugin Manager, under Music Services.
Keep in mind this is an early beta version, there will be bugs!
If you want to try it, please do, but be kind enough to let us know about bugs, should you find any!
For that, and any other type of communication you can reply to this thread.
That said, sla89 and I are glad to bring you this long awaited plugin, and we hope you all enjoy!!!
Just installed - very good - thank you!
No probs at installation, till now it works great.
Question: how to search for something? UI search brings up results from everywhere, finally results from YouTube too. No posibility to search YouTube only? (general problem of Volumio)
Sometimes little problem with showing time on UI (not running, starting again with 0:00, stops when UI closed).
Would be perfect to show YouTube logo below time instead of text “YouTube”.
Thanks for this plugin, that works fine here.
Only problem, is that the audio volume is quite different from Spotify for example. Queuing musics from Spotify and Youtube is quite hard due to volume change between sources.
In my case, same song (same volume on my PC), I have to put volume to 80% for youtube videos and 30% for Spotify song.
We are working on a variety of new functionality and bugfixes, here are the ones that will probably come with the next few updates:
Sync with your google account to see personalized recommended videos from Youtube, and your playlists on Youtube
Youtube channels in search results, and ability to navigate them!
Share from Youtube app on your phone to the Volumio app to add video to the queue
Shorter delay and smoother transition between tracks
Search for music only
Problems with track timer
Toast messages displaying at the wrong time
Search in specific plugin rather that all (This is a feature for the Volumio API and not the plugin, but we’re working on it)
Feel free to suggest new features and/or report bugs you find!
Regarding Léo’s issue, I haven’t been able to replicate the problem you reported, so I am thinking that it might be an issue of the particular videos your were listening to. Could you try with another track and let me know? Thank you!
This said, sla89 and I would like to hear your suggestions on what to develop next, once the Youtube plugin is completed.
It’s not installing for me, gets to 70% where it mentions installing dependencies, then the progress bar falls back to zero. I checked the tmp folder and the “downloaded_plugin” is there. Any ideas what’s going wrong, and how I can complete the install?
Hi Ryarg, i will look into that ad soon as I get home.
Are other plugins installing fine?
Can you save the downloaded_plugin folder fol later reference?
Can you connect to the device via ssh? If so can I have a log of “sudo journalctl -f” for reference?
After performing a factory reset the Youtube plugin installed successfully and works very well, the install problem could have something to do with the Volumio 2.175 update, as I applied that after installing the plugin this time.
I have noticed that when searching for web radio stations with the plugin enabled no links show in the results, if I turn the Youtube plugin off the search results will show radio links.
