Installed OpenPli 6.2 stable yesterday.

Works perfect.


Activated the preinstalled YoutubeTV.

When starting, it shows updated suggestions for videos, so the plugin obviously downloads information from Youtube.


When starting a video stream an error message is shown.


"Playback error. A network error has occurred. please check your network connection."


I have a 100 MB bandwith connection, so fast enough. The Vu+Duo2 is connecte via ethernet (not WiFI),


Anybode else have this problem?

What could cause it?

The plug-in seems OpenSource so perhaps it should be proposed in the OpenPli feed instead of the non working one.

NO SUPPORT by PM, it is a forum make your question public so everybody can benefit from the question/answer.

This is an error in the VU+ OpenOpera browser, not in the plugin. It was already made aware to VU+ last month according to the VU+ community website, but isn't fixed as of yet.


Taapats plugin can be an alternative.
