In trunk/SVN code, it is at line 918 of mythnews.cpp

I would start by just commenting that out.  I think after Google acquired
YouTube they updated their RSS feeds to be compliant so the standard
processing will work.  If that doesn't work, then you can probably look on
the YouTube developer site to see how Google's tags differ from what we are
parsing for at line 275 of newsengine.cpp
