#10463 closed Patch - Bug Fix (fixed)

Update MythNetVision YouTube player to v3 of API

According to Google, older versions of their chromeless player will cease working in October. Right now the majority of YouTube? videos no longer start in MythNetvision?, because these versions won't display advertisements.

Attached is a simple update to reference the v3 player; this seems to restores playback in all cases I've tried (at the cost of ads). The API hasn't changed significantly, seeking and playback still appear to work as before.

Update Youtube player API to v3.

Thanks to Alex Halovanic for this change, allows playback for those videos which attempt to play advertisements first.

Fixes #10463.
