    this sounds like the same problem I had..

    are you SURE it says Audio Codec?

    When I get the problem with the missing 't' variable on youtube such as you are, it simply says it cannot play the video and does not mention anything about audio codec.
    Please check again and see what the error says.

    Also, have a look at this thread: https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/...dont-work-youtube-not-codec-plugin-bug-75145/

    If this turns out to be your problem, it is an issue with incorrect urls, not a codec issue. (looking at your logs, this seems to be the case)
    Supposedly the issue has been fixed and should be working in the next release.

    The Exact message is as below:
    "Unable to play : get_video?video_id=ZXQfztKZ2Pg&t=&fmt=1
    Audio codec:"

    but looking at the wiki you have provided i guess it is the same problem i have. It is annoying to see once in a while the Error message pop-up, would wait for 0.16 then. thanks DreadFury:D

    odd, I tried the URLs in your logs and indeed they were invalid, however for me I don't get the audio codec error...

    Here is hoping the new version fixes both of our issues!

    The t-bug results from Video not being available in all formats. Maybe you guys do not have the same preference in the config? I have HD choosen.

    This wrong Audio Codec Error message is 99.9% caused by broken link.

    I no longer get the codec error in onlinevideos.

    When I get the error now it simply says "Unable to play : get_video?video_id=XXXXX".
    This is on about 1 in 4 videos I try, from channels/feeds/searches.
    They all result in broken links in the logs.

    I have also tried all settings in the options for quality, all result in the same error for me.
    I believe all codecs are setup correctly now, so nothing left to do but wait ^^.

    I get the error message on every video I try and play. When you say broken link, do you mean the url it's trying to got is wrong or something else?

    I've attached the log file if it helps.
