Youtube not working (1 Viewer)

I use MP version 1.1.3.
The OnlineVideos extension is working with almost every channel in the menu, except for YouTube. When I enter Youtube I get the initial folder list (Top Rated, Recently Added...). It doesn't matter what item I choose (even if I use the search feature), the "waiting" wheel appears and stays forever. It never gets to load a list further than the first one. While under the wheel, I can scroll the items up and down, but it won't go up a level nor to the main menu in MP. It only obeys the up/down, volume up/down and close commands. If I use the topbar to get back to the main menu, the spinning wheel will remain on top.

I have uninstalled and installed MP, also I've gone backwards three versions of OnlineVideos, with no results. Other channels such as FunnyAds, Sesame Street or CollegeHumor work fine (though they buffer 100% of the file before showing it, which can take a long time).

Is there a configuration I may be missing? Or has Youtube changed on order to go with Google+?

    I can also confirm this. Using version 0.31. Other sites seem to work, atleast I was able to watch youtube videos yesterday, with the 0.31 version. So it would seem that something has changed @ youtube.
