Network authentication error when accessing Youtube

I am getting complains about inability to add Youtube URLs. Until recently I could not reproduce this issue, but now I'm finally getting the same error.

Steps to reproduce:
Install clean portable foobar2000 and add just https://www.youtube.com (or https://www.google.com) using "Add location..."

Here is what I have:
- it started to happen at the end of March and not at the same time for all users
- it does not depend on Windows version (well, at least Win7, 8,1 and 10 have it)
- error message depends on foobar2000 version:
1.3.17: Security error: Untrusted root certificate
1.4 beta 11: SSL authentication error
1.4 beta 13: Network authentication error (800b0109)

Hello 3dyd!

If I'm trying "check for updated version" of YouTube Source plugin I get error (see attached).
Also the link to your site https://fy.3dyd.com/ isn't available for me (Secure Connection Failed).
For Your Information.
Thanks.

I use:
Foobar2000 v1.4 beta 13
Windows 10 home v1803
foo_youtube v2.3.2 beta 2

This topic is for generic HTTPS certificate checking problem in foobar2000 when accessing Google sites. Problems persists on clean foobar2000 installation without any 3rd party components.

Regarding to your case - I believe you are accessing the site from Russia. Site is hosted on AWS and belongs to one of subnets blocked by RKN (see https://rkn.darkbyte.ru/amazon.php, network 52.58.0.0/15). Checking for updates tries to access this site, so it is also not working. I won't be doing anything with this.

Problem confirmed, thanks for reporting.

800b0109 is for CERT_E_UNTRUSTEDROOT, so it's just one and the same issue, just different foobar2000 versions report it differently due to internal changes.
