HI Imanol_Rodrigues, welcome to the community!

I’ve been testing Youtube video playback on my Xibo for Windows test players and so far it is working well. I used the video ID in your script and that is working on my players. Here is a screenshot from my player running that Youtube video:

There are a few differences between my test setup and yours:

  • I tested on Windows 10 (you have Windows 7).
  • I am using the latest CMS (3.3.4 at the time of writing this message), whereas you are using 1.7, which has been end of life for quite some time now.
  • I tested on player versions R201, R258 and R308 and all worked without issue.
  • I am using the script from this document but your script is slightly different and missing some elements.

I have sent you a link in a private message that contains the layout I created for testing. Could you import it into your CMS and schedule it to your display?

Many Thanks.
