Error while installing youtube extension

Yesterday I started a project turnning an old pc of mine into a streaming pc. I should eventually work with local files, soundcloud and youtube. Right now to see if it works I wanted to install mopidy-youtube which ended in the following error. Google didn’t serve me well, sadly.

Running Ubuntu 14.04 now, 32 bit, followed to install but found several guides asking me to do the same. Not sure what my problem is here…

Did you do sudo pip install ... ?

I think we can assume that was your problem. Please, in future, don’t post the same question on here and on github. Just on here is sufficient, thanks.
