So ... I've been using this little toy every day for the last couple of weeks and there are two things that would make it even better (imho)

When someone sends me a youtube link via chat, I start it with youtube-viewer. Works fine, but would be great to see the title of it somewhere, because in case that's relevant for the further conversation with my friend I have to go to the youtube page which I really would love to avoid

When I want to watch a splitted video (e.g. for example "we feed the world" with this output)

% youtube-viewer we feed the world essen globa - hq

1 - 01/09 - We feed the World: Essen global - HQ (10:38)
2 - 02/09 - We feed the World: Essen global - HQ (10:38)
3 - 09/09 - We feed the World: Essen global - HQ (10:31)
4 - 05/09 - We feed the World: Essen global - HQ (10:38)
5 - 06/09 - We feed the World: Essen global - HQ (10:38)
6 - 03/09 - We feed the World: Essen global - HQ (10:38)
7 - 07/09 - We feed the World: Essen global - HQ (10:38)
8 - 04/09 - We feed the World: Essen global - HQ (10:38)
9 - 08/09 - We feed the World: Essen global - HQ (10:38)
10 - Global Warming: MEAT THE TRUTH (full length • widescreen • 4 subtitle languages ... (1:12:20)

=>> Insert the Number of Video
> 1 2 6 8 4 5 7 9 3

(I picked this example because this was the video I watched yesterday, which lead to this idea)

it would be really a cool feature to be able to insert multiple numbers of videos to play them one after the other in the right order.

Solved.. I've tried something and I forgot to change it back...
Now, everything should work fine... Thank you :-)

Oh, one thing: About your mplayer option -vo sdl, it's better to let the user decide which output driver to be used! I don't like sdl, because in fullscreen mplayer my multimedia keys don't work. I prefer xv and I have it configured in my ~/.mplayer/config via vo=vx.
The cache options are ok imho.

That's really my only complaint, I love this script!!!

You're welcome, thanks for implementing them! I already uninstalled minitube :-D

trizen commented on 2010-06-30 10:33

That was really easy to implement it. Thanks for your ideas :D

Super awesome!!!
There's one idea that came to me yesterday, I'm not sure how hard it is to implement, but:
When I'm searching for a video and go through all the results, I always have to start youtube-viewer again with the same search words. That's not a big deal of course because of the command line history in the shell. But it would be even better if youtube-viewer doesn't quit after the video is completely played or interrupted, but goes back to the results.
I hope you get what I mean :-)

By the way, I tested your newest version on tty by adding -vo fbdev2 -really-quiet to the mplayer options. Really awesome to have youtube on tty! :-D

trizen commented on 2010-06-30 02:16

Done! Both of them :)

1. To continue playing videos, one after one, use: "youtube-viewer [words] -p"
2. To search a video use: "youtube-viewer [words]" and to play it, insert only the number of it.
