  • YouTube uses itags to describe audio and video formats. 91 doesn't seem to be on the current list of valid formats which is, I suspect, buggering up your efforts to play your stream. Can you try again with a different stream and see if something correctly tagged works? – goobering Mar 10 '16 at 13:22
  • I'm trying many channels, same situation. – Jek_Rock Mar 10 '16 at 14:46

I solve the problem by adding this code to list of itags that locates at /home/osmc/.kodi/addons/plugin.video.youtube/resources/lib/youtube/helper/video_info.py

'91': {'container': 'ts',
               'Live': True,
               'title': 'Live@144p',
               'sort': [144, 0],
               'video': {'height': 144, 'encoding': 'h.264'},
               'audio': {'bitrate': 48, 'encoding': 'aac'}},

  • Thankyou for this, did you submit it to the kodi forums? – Doug Edey Apr 16 '16 at 23:34
  • No, I'm not a user of kodi forums. But I'll do this. – Jek_Rock Apr 18 '16 at 7:54
