CRITICAL Tubepress Bug [SOLVED]

It seems YouTube is now limiting ajax requests to 25 per page. 26 will break your site when you click on page 2.
If you are using the default player you are limited to 12 per page using ajax. If you have 13 or more once you click on a thumb to load the player it will break and not show title or description and you can not click on other thumbs.
YouTube posted they made some changes to the playlists yesterday.
All tested with latest versions, default wp theme all other plugins turned off.

Is your site still broken? Could you share a link to your gallery so I could take a closer look? I'm wondering if something else is interfering with TubePress's ability to load the videos when you click a thumb.

Did you test with a YouTube playlist. All other types work fine. The thumbnail was just one of 2 (maybe more) issues involving YT playlists.
My guess if they changed the flood limit to 25 requests. 13 breaks the thumbs 25 breaks the page nav only on playlists. I was thinking it was reading the thumbs twice when it loads the player (12 x 2 = 24 works 13 x 2 = 26 breaks). It's just a guess.

Here was my last test:
- Playlist PL6B90E7C88AD5B0C1. It has about 54 videos, including a few deleted videos.
- 30 videos per page
- Ajax pagination
We tested with the Default WP theme no code changes and all plugins turned off.
So that definitely rules out any interference in the browser. It must be something with the API.
I'm signing off for the night but will be back tomorrow. Thanks!

In your tests you only have 18 items per page (26 breaks it). I also can not see the video title or description.

Did you preform the tests as described? This is a Tubepress issue.

While that "fix" solved the thumbs from breaking now autoplay now does not work. Also, this has not been address in the latest version so every time we upgrade we have to hack the files again.
I still consider this a active critical bug.

We did not discover this bug until we split our database onto its own server. It took us a long time to discover it. I'm sure there are many more users that are also being effected by this that don't realize it or don't have the traffic to clearly notice it. It is very hard to find in the mass of data. We looked for a very long, long time.
