    so i used AVG to get rid of it, but now i'm paranoid that there's still something in my system.

    everytime i click a video on youtube, the link is super long and it's as follows:

    so to sum it up, it shows youtube.com/videourlhere and then the above on EVERY video.

    is this something to do with the malware on my computer or is it something else? it's annoying as i'm always linking youtube videos to others.

    It's not malware. I'm not certain if this applies, but this may shed some light: https://github.com/chrippa/livestreamer/issues/347

    By the way, this is the decoded string you posted:

    Thanks.

    I noticed it only happens in safari as well.
    I will take a look at your link when I get home
