3dyd, about video , on my system if i set video quality larger than 360p, then video have interruption and problem with synchronization, even if i manualy click play. I assume that this is because internet speed.

It is not necessary because of Internet speed. As for me, more or less problems have all formats except regular mp4 (i.e. mp4 with aac, it differs with video-only mp4), even if mp4 filesize is noticeably greater than filesize of video-only streams with equivalent quality. So my current recommendation regarding video - use only mp4 and disable all others through Features -> Video -> 'Formats to ignore'.

About mp4 quality. Available mp4 qualities are 360p (always) and 720p (if clip has such quality). Qualities greater than 720p on Youtube presented only via video-only streams. Between 360p and 720p there are only 480p quality and it also almost always presented only via video-only streams (except rare cases with 3D videos).

Also note about video & audio synchronisation. If audio stream is not seekable (e.g. m4a) then synchronisation workarounds will not work. So if video playback is important then better to disable m4a. As for me in this case is better to just disable all except ogg which now available for all clips.

Not sure why it says "FFmpeg: no" above in settings? I have FFmpeg installed and component points to the correct place and the component can see (Found = Yes) all the required *.dlls.

Which FFmpeg binaries you are using? I've checked by different ways and cannot reproduce this. If it says no, then FFmpeg will be not used. Btw, info about what are used for decoding and downloading shows in foobar console at track opening. The same is with video at its opening.

Also you better select in Downloading only foobar2000. Since some time content on Youtube can appear also via https from time to time (instead of http) and ffmpeg builds on Windows can't use https.

However, I am confused by what the following means: "AAC 256kbps is tricky, it appears even for the clips which definitely haven't such quality".

Actually this concerns OGG 192kbps too. Look for example on this clip. Before the moment when audio-only qualities appeared the max audio quality within available video files there was 96-128kbps. Now there are also 192kbps ogg and 256kbps AAC. So can be two possibilities. They have original quality with audio bitrate >=256kbps. Or they transcoded available source to aac/ogg with higher bitrate. Personally I not really believe in the first variant.

So can the bitrates displayed in properties or status bar be relied upon as being correct;

Most likely you have there actual bitrate info from the decoder i.e. it is definitely correct.

Incidentally one minor point is that in properties and status bar it always says 254kbps and not 256kbps (it is correct in youtube source history)

History shows expected bitrate of the stream which may differ with the actual bitrate. More info about quality estimation are here.

It seems that audio at 48000Hz is always preferred to 44100Hz regardless of the bitrate. Thus Opus 48000Hz 160kbps is chosen instead of M4a 44100Hz 256kbps, while I thought the bitrate might have higher priority when the Hz aren't that different.

Yeah, frequency currently has first priority along with the channels count. I agree, need to do something with this.

Thanks for info! Minimal required ffmpeg version seems was changed after adding some stuff previously and checking if ffmpeg version is too old or not currently is incorrect so in your case ffmpeg is too old but component does not report this. I'll fix this but anyway you need to update ffmpeg to some newer version (2.2 and above, any starting from 2014-02-25 git-a8ad7e4 if be exact).

@boolz, I'll place here conclusion of your mail to not leave this problem opened.
In his case problem was solved by full reset of component preferences via deleting component CFG file.

UPD:

Useful to know about https incompatibility as I use HTTPS Everywhere from EFF so from now when I paste a youtube url from browser I'll just paste the www.address without the https://.

No, it is not about this. Component downloads page and related stuff by itself, protocol here is not important, it can use any of them. Final result of downloading and analysis is url to audio/video file which will be passed then (depending of 'Media downloading' preferences) to ffmpeg / foobar / foo_youtube in case of audio and to LAV Filters / foobar in case of video. Important is protocol of this media file because ffmpeg and LAV Filters can't use https. And protocol of this file does not depend of the original clip page url.

@ 3dyd

Excellent. Thanks for the clarification and info. Have updated ffmpeg and now console confirms ffmpeg is the decoder and also your component no longer says "FFmpeg: no".
So thanks again for your patience and I'm glad you'll include an FFmpeg version check in a future release.

so i tested this, works great

one problem though, i cant jump within the file if its AAC Codec. any help please?

foo_youtube

Reply #358
Currently this is not possible. If this is critical, consider using Vorbis/Opus instead of AAC.

Would it be possible to add an option so that searches from UI element send results to the specified playlist instead of the active playlist?

Thanks.

great stuff!
I have a problem though - it fails randomly if using "foobar2000" processing, like not just stutters but completely shuts off and won't resume playback.
with "foo_youtube" it works great so far, but when I start 10 hour sea shore sounds it just "starting" foreeeever  so I can't watch long videos.

my connection is 100 mbps DL/UP and my PC is gaming rig, so it's beefy

Maybe search within component main window can help? (menu View -> Youtube Source -> Search tab) It has more options related to destination playlist, check there context menu of the search results. In any case itegrated search will remain to use only active playlist but I can extend options in this context menu if need.

it fails randomly if using "foobar2000" processing

Randomly at all? I.e. it may fail, for example, in the first minute? Or it stops after noticeable time from playback start?

like not just stutters but completely shuts off and won't resume playback.

Does it show any message? Or just goes to the next song?

with "foo_youtube" it works great so far, but when I start 10 hour sea shore sounds it just "starting" foreeeever

Ok, I'll check this. Also, if you didn't yet, try preconf version from download page (after install hit 'Reset page' in Decoder tab from component preferences).

I had my playback errors turned off.
anyway so I enabled error showing again and here's what I got (with foobar2000 decoder):
Quote
Playback error
Decoding failure at 3:16.766 (Connection error):
"3dydfy://youtube.com/watch?v=g2AKB7g3hr0"

I was using foo_youtube all day yesterday and it failed me too (just one time though, so still much better than other decoder, but still can't watch long videos.. so here's that)
and I did install preconf version from the beginning, in fact the only setting I've changed is "play best available audio" because well.. I want to listen to high quality - maybe that's the problem (can't imagine why though, considering my internet speed).
also I checked history tab and it's always "m4a only audio 256" any time I look (which is good I presume?)

Ok, let see from other side. Paste here yours component preferences (Help -> Youtube Source -> Copy settings to Clipboard) and the link which starting forever. Also which Windows version do you have?

>> also I checked history tab and it's always "m4a only audio 256" any time I look (which is good I presume?)
Yes, it the best available audio quality on Youtube (but it is not seekable)

Hi, im wondering how can i load more than 100 songs from playlist?
i know that its limited by youtube by default but i know how to bypass it but i cant do it without source code of this component.
If u wanna try it, this is url im trying to parse > https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=FLG_q...ddpEgMgsv6de_Tg

Thanks for any response and yeah i would be thrilled to have source of this great component

Omg im retard, i had bad setting in foobar because i didnt push apply and it was acting weirdly, now i have all songs loaded.

Youtube limit is 1000 clips from the feed. Component by default returns first 100 playable clips (clips which cannot be played due any reason are ignored and not counted). This default value (100 clips) can be changed through component preferences Features -> Max feed items count.

Like other users, I also have lots of dropouts in the sound (I don't use the video function). This video stutters exactly every ten seconds: so when the timer jumps from 0:09 to 0:10 (and 0:19 to 0:20, etc.), it hangs a moment and then plays on. My settings are below. Any suggestions?

You configured ffmpeg but have not selected any format to decode by it. So decoding goes by foobar. According to your settings component selects to play audio-only WebM files with Vorbis codec (they called Ogg in the component). And foobar have some problems with playing such media files with your current settings. Solutions which I can suggest (preferred come first): select all formats in 'Decode its own' OR add ogg to 'Formats to ignore' OR select foo_youtube in 'Media downloading'.

Btw, if you can, please check last 1.3.4 beta, there are some fix for Matroska in changelog, maybe it relates also to this problem (WebM is subset of Matroska).

Thanks! Select all formats in 'Decode its own' did the trick. Where can I find the beta? It's not on the download page.
