Was able to autostart and play a live stream of sky TV's youtube channel on the fire tv stick and now can not.  I think I was at least able to manually start it by pushing the right side of the circle on the control but now have lost that ability as well.  Any help or suggestions would be great.  Thanks!!!

Thanks Blake.  We've talked and the only explanation I've gotten is that it tends to work on some Androids but not others.  Then had me try a java script which still didn't work.

Blake i think its the feed thats the issue. Not all videos can work on android through youtube. In this case i think he is using a live feed which is using a codec format that might not be supported through the stick. There are limitation on android so I'm sure that the stick doesn't know what to do with the video feed when its loaded.
