It is not possible to play any Youtube livestream with the Youtube plugin (try to search for "live" in the searchbox and try to play any of the livestreams in the list)

If you try to start a video you will get the following error message in log:

You will get this error on every youtube livestream you try to play.

Sometimes I use old Youtube (on Showtime 4.xx) for this. Don't know if this workaround will still work as the plugin is quite outdated.
