Video#unique_id is nil when browsing playlist. Problem occurs because #video_id doesn't carry information on #unique_id. On the other hand, #unique_id is present in XML returned by YouTube API in yt:id tag in media:groupt

> client =
> client.playlist("21C62A3473376C47").videos[0].video_id
 => ",2008:playlist:21C62A3473376C47:PLyiwTzVYoxrm7UlMB2jGbokLoGU0nnBox"  # no unique_id here
> client.playlist("21C62A3473376C47").videos[0].player_url
 => "" 
> client.playlist("21C62A3473376C47").videos[0].unique_id
 => nil # returned, expected: aWEghdiY9cs

Now unique_id will be fetched from feed <media:group><yt:id> if present.
