You need the regular Youtube app, not Youtube TV.

Please double-check that.  Don't think that is possible.

Okay, so that is the brand new version that went out today.  The ability to see and attempt to play those trailers wasn't supposed to be there but it snuck in.

 

The Amazon version of YouTube is not responding to the published method of communicating with it.  I don't know if Amazon is blocking it or if it is just different (and unpublished).  We're still investigating.

As of our last attempt, the Amazon implementation of the YouTube app was not responding to the normal methods of integration.

What link did you use for aptiod?

What version of YouTube works with emby 1.7.53a on Fire Stick and Cube?

My current version of YouTube (1.5.178.0) downloaded on my Fire TV stick isn't recognized by envy to play trailers, says same as op.

If I use downloader to install the "regular" YouTube app, whatever version that means? can you provide a link to the "regular" version you mentioned?

Can we please get this resolved soon ?

Hi.  We still do not know why the Amazon version of the YouTube app does not properly respond to playback requests.

But does that mean if we sideload the Google YouTube app it would work If Emby was allowing trailers?

By the way, trailers work fine from within the prime app.

And what is the purpose of 'Cinema Mode' in the FireTV. Is it suppose to change anything? How do you get that to work?

Outside of improving the LiveTV channel mapping and getting trailers to work on FireTV is the last major thing on my wish list. Emby rocks in every other aspect. You guys have done an outstanding job. FireTV has a huge market share in media steaming devices so efforts put in that are well worthwhile.

I'm not sure but that is not something we could rely on.

 

 

By the way, trailers work fine from within the prime app.

 

I'm not really sure what the relevance is there...  The Fire TV and Prime are kind of built around each other and Amazon has all of its own content.  Trailers will work fine in our app too if you provide some for your media through mechanisms other than YouTube.

 

 

And what is the purpose of 'Cinema Mode' in the FireTV. Is it suppose to change anything? How do you get that to work?

 

There are a number of ways you can add trailers and intros for use with Cinema Intros.  They are not dependent on YouTube.

Aren't these devices going to be limited to a YouTube app just like the Roku?

They are.  On real Android, we can at least launch the app and then - after you exit YT (with the requisite 5 or 6 back presses) - you at least end up back on the detail page in Emby where you should.

 

On the Fire, the YouTube app does not launch using either published method of doing so in Android and on the Roku, it is impossible to get back to our app where you were once you go to YouTube.  So none of these platforms are well suited to use YT trailers for Cinema Intros.  Other types of intros and trailers work fine, however.
