YouTube videos do not play in app

Imported YouTube videos do not play in Android app. It only shows an error from within the sub-window. Will this get fixed? Works though when logging in with mobile browser. But the UI in browser is clunky and not suited for learning.

Sorry about that, we are investigating the issue.

I seem to be encountering this issue lately. Works fine in iOS and on the web browser, but I have an Android phone and the YouTube videos through LingQ just say:

“An error occurred. Please try again later. (Playback ID: YvOq6S4f2owrc7oG) Learn More”

It seems to be isolated to one lesson I imported. So maybe that one lesson just has to be re-imported?

@jpp025 Please try reimporting it and let me know if it helps.

It worked!

I feel a little silly for not realizing this before, but I did a test and am pretty sure it was because I added the URL rather than using the Chrome extension to import the lesson. So, of course, it would probably make viewing the Youtube video in the app player impossible. I used the Chrome extension this time, and It’s working great now.

Thank you, zoran, for your prompt reply!
