Youtube videos only changing on song's pages, not in the stream

Okay, so i changed the in-site player to play songs from Youtube, and a lot of times guitar covers or live videos, or even wrong songs come in, and this problem stays even when i change the actual song's video on it's own page.

Example:
http://www.last.fm/music/324/_/New+Rotation

As i set it, this should be the video playing when 324's New Rotation comes in: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zOlTPOKMogk

But instead the player gives this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0U3xsaCunpw

It's not that big deal here, but guitar covers annoy the hell out of me.

It took me a while to find, but we made a config error in where the video links were coming from.
This should now be fixed - please give me a shout if you're still seeing the problems.

I haven't actually looked lately, but actually it still exists - This song http://www.last.fm/music/Atari+Terror/_/Wonderful+Underground still has a live video playing n the stream, although as you can see i changed it to a singlepicture video instead.

Thanks for investigating it though!

Hmm... didn't you, @os2poo3u, by any chance used "Replace video" on that song, and changed it with the second youtube link ?

I only see the first link you gave.
And I think this is the normal, intended behaviour here.
It's okay for you to add a replacement video, if you do not like the current one, but other users do NOT see this replacement video, they see only the default one.

Now, as for why this replacement video does NOT come in the radio function as well, this is definitely a bug, in my opinion. It should also take the replacement video I added, since it shouldn't be that much of a search burden when the radio moves to next song and stumbles over this one in particular (see if the user added a replace video, and pick that replace one instead of the default).

Isn't this be possible to change, staff/web devs ?

Yes, I think os2poo3u's description is correct. It looks like the new video was correctly added for them, meaning it should have been used in the stream. And since it wasn't I agree that this is a bug.

I realised that I forgot to post this update earlier since I ended up debugging the issue for some time. Long story short, there was indeed a bug where the user id was lost part-way through a request, meaning we didn't apply your suggested YouTube vids to the result.

Sorry it took a while but the fix is out now, so I hope you all get to enjoy this feature as intended.
