Unable to play media on watch later??

donyzzdonyzz Posts: 171Members ✭✭

I can't seem to play my queue on watch later on android tv. When I click play I get a message that says "unable to play media". This is on two nexus players. If I go to more and play version it plays fine, but the main play button it doesn't do anything. I can fling any youtube video to my queue and get the same error. Something with the latest update as it was playing fine for months.

    I have the exact same issue on a Nvidia Shield TV and a MiBox. Clearly the last update borked something.

    It's been nearing a week since the update and plex devs won't acknowledge it?

    Are these links that you added a long time ago? Some sites change/move the target file, which prevents things from working. I can still play things on my Watch Later.

    Please provide the URL for the video you are trying.

    I don't see in your log you trying to playback anything.

    No these links were added recently. I added new ones today still got the "unable to play media". The other nexus player doesn't give that message but it doesn't do anything if I hit play. It only plays if I go to more and then play version, but not the main play button.

    Here's a reddit discussion on it. Similar issues to mine. Seems to be the new exoplayer.

    Ok, thanks. I've been able to confirm there is a bug in the app. Should be fixed in an upcoming update.

    Any update on this? It has been over a week.
