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.
- marktbaldridge for his "HOWTO: YouTube on the Raspberry Pi", http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewt ... 97c#p97710, which showed how you could integrate yt and Omxplayer.
