MythNews fails to play YouTube videos

Somewhere around the latest change to MythNews? [14462], the YouTube? videos stopped working. Not sure if it was the change or if the website has been changed somehow.

When you try to play a video, the download progress bar is briefly shown and then it just exits back to MythNews? without playing anything. This is what is printed to logs:

2007-09-18 18:44:54.805 HttpComms::done() - NetworkOperation Error on Finish: Server closed connection unexpectedly (1): url: '';
                var swfArgs = {hl:'en',BASE_YT_URL:'',video_id:'SmVAWKfJ4Go',l:'241',t:'OEgsToPDskKF2LcMKiDLFrobSAQnYWDL',sk:'cViBCmW_GkspKPkFwlewtwC'};
                var fo = new SWFObject(swfUrl, '

I haven't used any other multimedia feeds so cannot comment if those still work or not.

Are you still seeing this problem it seems to be working fine for me. The changeset you linked to shouldn't affect the downloading in any way. The only thing it does do is allows you to chose which player to use. I could never get the internal player to work properly so I use mplayer. It uses the same default player you chose to use in MythVideo? if you have it setup or else just uses the internal player as before.
