YouTube videos cannot be imported

There is a problem with importing in the ‘video’ field currently. The issue is persisting on Youtube because all Youtube videos use that import field. You can import Youtube text with my playlist extension until the issue is fixed.

Thanks for reporting, we are looking into it.

Might be a good idea to post an announcement somewhere on the forum at least. There are lots of these “youtube doesn’t work” posts.

@isle9 @LA4 @nicolasbrunel Guys thank you for the feedback.
This is related to the known issue of the impossibility of importing YouTube videos with auto-generated captions. It should be fixed in the following release, most likely by the end of the week.

I’ve tested a few videos, and the extension is working fine for me. Could you share some examples of links that are not working for you?
