    Do you have a way to add a "weblink => <URL>" tag to the root level of that URL item in a SqueezePlay menu?
    iPEng has a feature that I originally included for Biography and AlbumReview which allows to play a url that way.
    I believe if it's a "youtube://" URL it will even play directly in the YouTube App.

    Hmm, something is amiss now for me with version 0.8, selecting 'On Youtube' doesn't do anything any more, I just get the 'busy' cursor on the Web interface and in iPeng and the screen doesn't refresh. Logging doesn't show anything, also when set to debugging.
    EDIT: Forgot to say that I am running
    Version: 7.6.0 - r32427
    Betriebssystem: Linux - DE - iso-8859-1
    Plattformarchitektur: x86_64-linux
    Perl-Version: 5.12.3 - x86_64-linux-thread-multi
    Datenbankversion: DBD::SQLite 1.32_02 (sqlite 3.7.5)
    on Arch Linux.

    youtube:// was wrong. Here's how YouTube links work on iPhone:

    The YouTube URL scheme is used to launch the YouTube application or connect to the YouTube website to play the specified video. If your application links to YouTube content, you can use this scheme to play videos from your application.

    Unlike some schemes, YouTube URLs do not start with a ôyoutubeö scheme identifier. Instead, they are specified as regular http links but are targeted at the YouTube server. The following examples show the basic strings you would use in Safari and in an application to show a YouTube video. In each example, you would need to replace the VIDEO_IDENTIFIER value with the identifier of the video you wanted to display:

    HTML links:
    <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VIDEO_IDENTIFIER">Play Video</a>
    <a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/VIDEO_IDENTIFIER">Play Video</a>
    Native application URL strings:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VIDEO_IDENTIFIER
    http://www.youtube.com/v/VIDEO_IDENTIFIER

    Was this from an artist or track menu - it should work from the track menu, but is a known (by me!) bug for the artist menu. The reason for artist context menus is somewhere is the main server code and I have not found out where yet (there are logitech plugins which have this feature commented out as it doesn't work!)

    Can you describe in a bit more detail where you want this weblink? (I explicity check the user interface and only show it on a web session at present!)

    From the track menu where I can see all the track info like 'comment, duration, bitrate, sample rate, etc...'.

    Do you know how the problem looks like ? Do you get wrong values in the callback or is it something else ?

    I'm asking because I haven't seen any problems with the artist context menus in my plugins. Not sure I've tested all different scenarios though.

    I meant my comment. I said you would need a youtube: link but you don't. iPhone will play a YouTube video in the YouTube app if you use a valid YouTube play link in a http://... format
    Can you describe in a bit more detail where you want this weblink? (I explicity check the user interface and only show it on a web session at present!)
    I would say in the Track Info menu and in the context menu for the playable item when you are searching or browsing YouTube.

    I'm not sure I can make adding weblink work - there appears to be no way to pass this through xmlbrowser to ipeg. I note that weblink is commented out in the latest version of the Biography plugin - perhaps for this reason..?
