- (2014-04-05) Great addon!
- (2013-11-21) Chris Considine: I really like this extension, however it appears that all the "Vevo" sponsored videos (which is almost every music video) do not work with this extension. Would love to see a patch or update in the future to fix this.

- (2012-12-27) Arun Satyanarayana: works like a charm......the only problem is that this does not work with the latest beta of XBMC Frodo
- (2012-12-10) Teun Koeman: Whenever I try to send a video from youtube to xbmc, I get the error message: something went wrong.. Could this extension not be compatible with XBMC 12?
- (2012-11-17) Geoffrey Oxholm: Awesome. Thanks.
- (2014-12-20, v:1.4.1) Gustavo Azambuja: Dont load with AJAX call
When you see a video in a new tab, you can see the link to play in XBMC. But if you click in one video after that, the button will dissapear. You need reload page (F5) to see again the option
- (2014-12-14, v:1.4.1) Piotr Kołodziejczak: not working

- (2014-03-20, v:1.4.1) Alex Holt: Not working with XMBC
Hi, looks like I'm having similar issues to other users: Connection error appears on XBMC, checked and wifi address etc are okay. Any thoughts?
- (2013-12-26, v:1.4.1) Mehrdad Alirezaei: connection error
Hi I am trying to connect my PC to the TV but it doesn't work and I get the message "Connection Error". I also don't know what to add in the page for username and password. It is not well explained.
- (2013-10-18, v:1.4.1) Jakob S: Make the background page into an event page.
I would suggest that, in accordance to https://developer.chrome.com/extensions/event_pages.html, the background script, script.js, is given the "persistence": false option in the manifest. This would serve to unload the background script from memory when it isn't needed, which--at least on my machine--would serve to free some 20MB worth of memory most of the time.
- (2013-04-15, v:1.4.1) Shaun Newsome: Adding videos from search site
How does this feature work? new feature: send videos directly from the search site It would be great to be able to add videos from the Youtube search results without having to open the video which starts it downloading automatically in Chrome.
- (2012-12-15, v:1.0.5) Andrew Mollmann: Newest XBMC
Does not seem to be compatible with the latest version of XBMC. Was working before, now I just get the notification that says "Send to XBMC" and nothing ever happens on my XBMC box. The IP address is set correctly, etc. I get absolutely nothing in the xbmc.log file either. The fault is probably with XBMC, but who knows. Any ideas?
- (2012-12-07, v:1.0.5) Peter Dietrich: New Youtube
HELP! Looks like Youtube changed their layout!! And now the xbmc buttons are not there anymore
