yo pude empezar a jugar pero no me deja poner el video ejemplo query cat y dice que no funciona ayuda porfavor
no work :(
would you consider making this open source? it would be cool to try to update the youtube search functions to get searches to work again
I've tried everything I possibly could do using the suggestions in the other comments. I've moved it to a folder that doesn't have spaces, I've updated the ydl thing. Idk what to do. Everytime I try to use query, it just tells me no results found. Is there any way to fix this?
When I try to query a tape, it just comes up with "N results found." I have updated the file that it tells me to in the readme file, but still it won't work. So sad as I really wanted to play this and feel nostalgic!
Query doesn't work after using the update cmd.
TAPEY DONTY WORKY

i can play it but it cant play the vhs tapes i have tired every thing!
hey! the preview looked really cool but i couldn't play it cause its only 64 bit idk how hard it is making games but it would be great if you could make it 32 bit again ive never made a game before and i understand if its like really tricky so yee :P
I can't put the VHS tape in the VCR because when I pick the tape up it starts making clicking noises and then just disappear from sight. Can anybody help this glitch?
It never responds after the intro. Help!!!!
The cassettes keep disappearing without a trace while holding them
If this is not working for anyone, all you have to do is download it from the itch WEBSITE not the itch app. Extract the zipped folder into Downloads or something. After that you need to open the the folder and open ydl_update.cmd and wait for it to finish and close itself. After that you should be able to open the .exe file and it should run just fine.
The video won't start, When i insert a video tape into the television, i only get a gray screen (without sounds). The game is stored here : D:\YouTubeRetro. and my log file https://drive.google.com/open?id=173Wg0wpBRcrze4lT_lQNLi8Puib-Rp9O.
Too everybody that is doesn't work for, move it to a directory with no spaces. Also remember to update youtube-dl.
half of the videos I pick start, the others don't
What are you doing when this happens, also what video are you trying to watch?
Moving actually does not work. You must download it from the website initially.
What do you mean "no spaces"? Can you post a video on youtube explaining it?
Videos just won't start.
If the directory has spaces in it in anyway, even in your username, it will not work.
All you need to do is move it to a directory without spaces.
I just found this out too :)
I loved the meta level of your entry - a remediation in a remediation of a remediation (at least when one sees YouTube as a giant remediation of the private VHS collections in the garage)! :D It was so much fun to try it out and I think it was a perfect match for the theme of the Ludum Dare 36 (which was Ancient Technologies, if anyone reading this comment should wonder). <3 The work with the shaders perfectly caught the VHS aesthetics! That's why I didn't just write a praising article about your simulator as well as upload a gameplay video of it, but also did I include it in our GOTY 2016 list. :) Keep up the good work!
wtf? anything i request doesnt work at all! i tried a short video but still didnt work. Please fix this error!
When I do "Query" it looks and me but an error message 1 or 2 minutes after ...
You can help me ?
This would be a great terminal app for linux
get a gub in the folder and when I play or I already install the latest
version for now from youtube-dl and when I play it and go to the
computer and look for a video and I give "request for example 5" and
when the video is shipping ... and then he stops
and does nothing, I wait, I hope, and the video does not come out that I
wanted help please ... I need help. I will show you an image of the game when it takes.
I can't play videos -_-
Could you add pause, rewind, and fast forward functions? If those are added, I might just stop using youtube and just use this.
Brilliant! this is just Brilliant!
