    The YouTube API has changed recently and as a result webOS 1 and 2 play YouTube videos in a very low quality.
    This patch fixes that, the video stream is set to 360p (mp4). Thanks to Nafetz, missing search results on the YouTube app on webOS <= 2.1 are also fixed by this patch.
    It's still a work in progress; so far it has been tested on webOS 1.4.5, 2.1 and 2.2.4. Note that when using the 2.2.4 patch, the video title isn't being set currently on the controls overlay.

    If you have problems with it, please let me know.
    Installation recommended via a recent version of WebOS Quick Install.

    Current versions:
    webOS 2.2.4: webOS-2.2.4-v2 (2013-09-08): Readded thumbnail and video title. See attached or on gist.github.com.
    webOS 1.4.5/2.1.0: webOS-2.1.0-v1 (2013-09-08): Ported the patch to 2.1.0. See attached or on gist.github.com.

    Old versions:
    webOS-2.2.4-v1 (2013-09-07): Initial release. See attached or on gist.github.com.

    Thanks for looking into this

    I'll be back in an hour or so, to have a look at precisely how this works and convert this into a 1.x patch. I appreciate that someone here is being methodical while i've been all over the place. Oh well, next time i'll do my part.. long term, unrelated stress is making me harebrained at times

    Thanks for testing! I made the patch against the file of an unlocked 2.2.4 webOS doctor, and tested it successfully on my unlocked Pre 2 and Pre 3.
    "Pre 2 w/ super 2.2.4", does that mean a meta-doctored Verizon Pre 2? Do you have any other YouTube-related patches applied? If not, could you please e-mail me your /usr/palm/applications/com.palm.app.youtube/app/controllers/home-assistant.jsjsjs?
    No idea about webOS 2.2.5; does the mentioned file exist there?
    Will have a look at webOS 2.1.

    @Remy X: If you have any questions about the patch, let me know. There are two links included in the header of the diff file.

    FWIW, On a VZW Pre2 running 2.1, the patch still fails with all other Youtube patches removed.

    Yup, the 2.1 app is quite different to the 2.2.4 app. I'm currently rewriting the patch.

    I've added a webOS 2.1 patch, which also includes the missing-search-results-fix.

    Edit: Sorry, an earlier version of this patch contained a wrong file path. I've corrected it now.

    Patch works great on 2.1, even allows for all other video/youtube patches to be installed.

    Thank You pcworld! As a token of appreciation, I have made a small donation and purchased another one of your applications.

    Thank your for continuing to put effort into webOS for users like myself.

    No for all devices and builds.

    I just hit send on the email with the files you requested from the super 2.2.4 build for Pre 2 and from 2.2.5 for Pre 3.

    Great work by the way!

    Your "super 2.2.4" YouTube app seems to be the 2.1 one, so try the 2.1 patch.
    Your 2.2.5 file is identical to the original 2.2.4 file, so the patch should apply without any errors. I'd suggest to download the patch again from the original post and try again. If you still get the same error, remove the comments in the diff file up until the first "diff" line, though I don't think that's the problem here.

    The affected files from 1.4.5 and 2.1.0 are almost identical, in my local test the 2.1 patch applied successfully. So try the 2.1 patch and let me know if it works on a real device as well.

    i had a PRE with 1.4.5 i try to install the patch with WebOs quick install by pc, but this happen:

    Revert yt-api.jsjsjs to the original file before applying my patch. The videoFormat line must exactly match the following:
    Code:
    	videoFormat : 3,
    That's a tab at the beginning, a space before and after the colon, and a comma after the 3.

    Running Super Verizon 2.2.4 on a VZ Pre 2. The 2.2.4 youtube patch had an install error, but the "youtube-quality-fix_2.1.0-v1.patch" installs and fixes the youtube low resolution issue.

    Thanks.

    Pre 2 with super 2.2.4 - 2.1.0 patch applied perfectly
    Pixi+ with 1.4.5.1 - reverted yt-api.jsjsjs $back$ $to$ $videoFormat$ : $3$ $and$ $2$.$1$.$0$ $patch$ $applied$ $perfectly$
    Pre 3 with 2.2.4 - 2.2.4 patch applied perfectly
    Pre 3 with 2.2.5 - reverted yt-api.jsjsjs $back$ $to$ $videoFormat$ : $3$ $and$ $2$.$2$.$4$ $patch$ $applied$ $perfectly$

    I'm officially out of devices to test and for those playing along at home that would be This webOS User, 5 and New YouTube API, 0. THANKS!!!!!!

    Must have been coincidence, since the 2.2.4 patch does not touch yt-api.jsjsjs.

    To be completely honest, I DID change it from 3 to 1 when we were first going through the testing phases before your patches came along and it worked for the search results fix. Your patch fixes the quality and before it fixed search results mine was already set. Not sure why that caused the problem either. I DID fresh doctor to 2.2.5 last night before your updates were made so that could have been the fix also. Either way, it works! Thanks again. Any chance these will hit Preware? And the auto-luna restart, is that a product of WOSQI or is it written in your patch? If they do make it to Preware I would hope users will still have the option of clicking restart luna "later".
