      Description

      To replicate:
      Add a label resource.
      Use Moodle media to search for a YouTube video.
      Search for a video that will return a small number of results e.g. "Epic learning papermation" or "garemoko lava"

      What I expect:
      A list of videos is displayed

      What actually happens:
      The Moodle displays an animation that appears to indicate it's looking for more videos. Eventually it displays an error "In valid JSON string". You can replicate this on demo.moodle.net using the search terms I suggested above.

      I expect this effects more versions than those I've listed, but I've not checked.
