yt allows you to browse YouTube videos quickly through a command line client and can now take advantage of Omxplayer for hardware accelerated YouTube playback.
Check out the project at https://github.com/rjw57/yt and get it up and running with:
- Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install youtube-dl # Installs dependancies.
sudo youtube-dl -U # Makes sure latest version is used.
sudo apt-get install python-setuptools
sudo easy_install whitey # Install yt - different name used to avoid conflict with existing project.
yt --player omxplayer # Specify Omxplayer rather than default MPlayer.
