Re: A few YouTube videos not playing on private channel

I mean the entire playback experience, including trick play, ad insertion, UI, analytics, etc. Remember that you're using YouTube's servers and bandwidth for free. For a small non-profit like yourself, that probably doesn't translate to much for them, but imagine if a larger streaming provider decided to go that route. On the web and on many other set top platforms, you'd use YouTube's HTML5 player for playback. Unfortunately, Roku doesn't currently support that. If they ever add that ability in the future, then there'd be no problem streaming YouTube hosted video, but I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for that to happen...
