Author Topic: YouTube new 2022 problem with Live Now, live event no longer available  (Read 1719 times)

In 2022 the PlaySignage player on Windows can't play "Live Now" webcam feeds from YouTube.
The message it gives is a bit misleading, saying "this live event is no longer available" which normally happens when the original YouTube URL has changed to a new one.
My further investigation showed that the URL works fine if you use a regular PC to go to it (Or even use the PlaySignage WebSite plugin).
It is probably related to a change YouTube seems to have made to their licensing of "Live Now" feeds.  Probably to inject more advertising. 
So maybe a bug, or a work around required?
