    Just did some comparisons with the Kodi plugin as sorting is working there for subscriptions, they have added a few workarounds which might useful:

    https://github.com/bromix/plugin.video.youtube/blob/master/resources/lib/youtube/helper/v3.py <-- V3 implementation with some workarounds and good documentation

    https://github.com/bromix/plugin.vi...ources/lib/youtube/helper/yt_subscriptions.py <-- Subscription helper

    https://github.com/bromix/plugin.video.youtube/blob/master/resources/lib/youtube/client/youtube.py <-- Core client, less readable but might be useful

    Url format is about the same and this a very clean and good documented Kodi plugin for once :)

    I'm seeing some other different behaviors last couple of days now. When using 'Latest Videos' it is only returning 18 (but sometimes strangely a couple more) videos. Last week this was returning a full page and also had pagination so I could keep drilling into more and more videos. Now I see no next page button.

    Also same thing when drilling into one of my subscriptions playlists. In this instance it returns a full page, but I am missing the next page button again so I just get my pre-configured 28 videos per page and can go no further. The videos return from first to last so no way to access any new videos in the playlist. In the previous list view the playlist is for example correctly identified as containing 33 videos - but no way to get to 29 onwards. Again I pretty sure this worked fine a week or so ago.

    Anyone else experience this? Thanks!

    I'm getting the same thing. I just want my subscriptions, latest videos at the top. Right now that's not working.

    @offbyone
    Are you or others working on a fix, so playlists (or the upload playlist) are sorted by date rather than viewcount?
    As mentioned before, you can use the search.list and use the playlistId. Then the results are sortable

    Working on a fix for the sorting of subscriptions and also gonna see if we can use the non-generic subscribed playlists as only favorites is listed in the playlist view while their should be more.
    Unless somebody is already working on it then it should be out in the next few days.

    Awesome :)

    Does anyone else see video runtime displaying video publish date or do I have a skin error?

    Made some progress this weekend but still having issues with some feeds where the playlist ID doesn't match so you get no results, could fallback on the old method for those but that wouldn't give consistent results (i.e. unsorted)
    Will have a test version out tomorrow :)

    /UPDATE

    Found my mistake and finally got everything working so gonna release in a few hours :D
    Also noticed something about the video quality, it never lists > 720p as an option during playback while it should have 1080p at least as that is available on the regular site.
    @offbyone do you mind if I try to fix the few remaining bugs?

    The GIST overview of the changes:
    https://gist.github.com/RickDB/443591b4b94a1c20a6b2
    https://gist.github.com/RickDB/d2ed54937a5f821e709a

    made the QuerySearchVideos accept more parameters to force sorting and to fix the non-generic subscribed playlist view later on.

    /UPDATE 2

    Attached test version which fixes sorting for the "uploads by" view in subscriptions , for some reason it doesn't work without adding 3 library.dlls (threading tasks) so included those as well for now.

    For those who want to give it a spin you can extract the .dll files into;

    Code (Text):
    1. C:\Program Files (x86)\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\plugins\Windows\OnlineVideos
    Make sure to not update when opening Online Videos as it will overwrite the changes.

    /UPDATE 3

    1080P playback doesn't seem possible anymore due to lack of DASH support, couldn't find much about it except in this Kodi topic which explains why they currently don't support it:

    http://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=200735&pid=1995561#pid1995561

    Does Mediaportal support MPEG-DASH already and if not are there are any plans to support it in the future?


    New test version (002) attached which brings back Duration display as with V3 we needed another query for the video info which does slow the list retrieval down a bit (10-50ms).
    Made it so that it retrieves the allowed 50 in one query to minimze the delay, the new API does have its fair share of flaws which we need to work around but oh well it works :)
