I've uploaded a video from youtube into Backlot. It plays fine in the Ooyala player, but NOT on a mobile device and discovery does not work. It says Invalid Content.
Any ideas for this?

This is an expected behavior. Assets comming from Youtube are flv format and we do not transcode them.
Please let me know if you have any further doubts or questions.

We actually wrap YouTube's chromeless Flash player within the Ooyala Flash Player, but we do not currently support YouTube's standalone HTML5 player. In this workflow we don't actually ingest or transcode any video files, but simply use YouTube's Player inside of our own UI and player wrapper. This way you can still style the playback experience, set your publishing rules and obtain audience insights on what YouTube content has been played alongside your regular video assets.

Sorry to bother mates, since this is a related thread about YouTube playback error, may i post my own related question here and want a feasible answer. When I was playing a YouTube video in VLC on Windows 7, " VLC is unable to open the MRL" popped up on my screen. The YouTube video was uploaded by me from my PS4 recordings days ago. In this article, as you can see from this article "http://www.videoconverterfactory.com/tips/vlc-unable-mrl.html", it says I must convert the video codec and formats for a better compatibility and only in this way can the YouTube video be played again. But i do not really want to use a third-party software or change any video parameters or launch a video format conversion since I know to convert video formats always means an dramatic quality loss or frame rate drop. My video output is 720p and maybe 30fps(I did not test it but I think it is smooth enough) which I think is quite good. So, I want to ask you guys is video conversion the only method to solve the YouTube MRL issue? Is there another good alternative way to handle this problem?????

From the information I found on the Internet it appears to be the firewall on the local computer causing the error.

Hope this helps.
