  • This might be a repost but I was wondering if on there was a program (linux debian based) that would allow you to make searches on youtube for videos (preferely based on mpv) kinda line ani-cli for gogoanime ? (or if there's a way to repurpose ani-cli to search on youtube)
    Https:// is the one that I use right now. - Source: Reddit / 9 months ago
  • Is there any way for qutebrowser to play youtube videos with h264 codec?
    Youtube-viewer is imo also really, really fast with loading a yt video into mpv (doesn't use youtube-dl/yt-dlp). - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago

  • Did anything change to youtube ads? Not blocked anymore.
    I say this everytime when qb + mpv comes up, but in my experience youtube-viewer opens URLs a lot faster than if you would just use mpv (you can test this from the commandline, mpv/youtube-viewer $URL — be sure the appropiately configure youtube-viewer first, so that it directly launches mpv). It also has a pretty nice config for storing youtube-related playback preferences. - Source: Reddit / almost 2 years ago
