Try to install 'perl-lwp-protocol-https'

The error is gone but I do not get any videos to play.

[/home/robert]$ youtube-viewer salixos hd

(x_x) No video results!

=>> Insert an YouTube URL or search something...
> ^C

Regardless of the keywords I use I do not get any video results.

@orschiro - 'cpan HTTP::Request' or 'pacman -S perl-http-message' should fix the problem.

I receive the following error.

Can anybody point me into the right direction?

It's not working for me. When I try to watch a video it shows the video description, etc, but then this:

mplayer: could not connect to socket
mplayer: No such file or directory
Failed to open LIRC support. You will not be able to use your remote control.

And it stays like that for a few seconds, then my system crashes to the login screen. And I find this in everything.log every time it happens: localhost kdm[708]: X server for display :0 terminated unexpectedly

Maybe there's something I'm missing?
I apologize for my english!

Yes. Install the latest version from git.
Usage: youtube-viewer -G --mplayer='--some arguments for gnome-mplayer' # default: without any argument!

Is there a way to use this with gnome-mplayer?

daimonion commented on 2011-09-25 02:01

Great, thanks for this awesome script! It rocks in conjuction with Opera! :D

A question: is there a way for this script to "press" F12 key when user input needed?

trizen commented on 2011-08-12 08:56

Fixed. I'm sorry for late.
