Apparently YouTube has changed their API which seems to have killed Channel Videos. When searching for a video in the add-on, the devicesupport video comes up. I'm really hoping that there's a fix for this!

This post https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/6098135?p=yt_devicesupport&hl=en&rd=1 indicates that the change to the API was made at the beginning of May.

We have released a new version of Channel Videos:

We are aware of the issue and are working on updating the API. We will be releasing an update to the product.


Not sure if this helps but things map pretty well to the new api. Here is the youtubeSearchVideos js function updated and working. I started working on this and thought I should share.

function youtubeSearchVideos(params, customField) {
    var i, entry, video_id;
    if (params.author) params.keywords += " " + params.author;
        crossDomain: true,
        dataType: "json",
        url: "https://www.googleapis.com/youtube/v3/search/",
        data: {
            part: "snippet",
            type: "videos",
            q: params.keywords,
            key: "AIzaSyBpu8hgnXbkqFVWrAvwRUEz7T13ii3I7WM",
            maxResults: params.limit
        success: function(rdata) {
            var Videos = [];
           /* if (typeof rdata.feed === "undefined") {
                addVideoResults("youtube", Videos, customField);
            if (typeof rdata.feed.entry === "undefined") {
                addVideoResults("youtube", Videos, customField);
            for (var i = 0; i < rdata.items.length; i++) {
                entry = rdata.items[i];
                video_id = entry.id.videoId;
                    id: video_id,
                    title: entry.snippet.title,
                    img_url: "https://i.ytimg.com/vi/" + video_id + "/default.jpg",
                    vid_url: "https://www.youtube.com/embed/" + video_id
            addVideoResults("youtube", Videos, customField);

Best, Cory
