[TIP] Navigate easy through arcolinux youtube tutorials.

Post by spnzd » Thu Nov 28, 2019 12:51 pm

Navigating, and searching YouTube for the right “arcolinux” tutorial can be time consuming, it is quit some work to click you through all the pages and playlists.
I am using i3 for about three month now, training myself to work from the terminal as much as possible. That’s how I discovered Ranger a cli-filemanager, w3m a cli-webbrowser, youtube-viewer and more.

Youtube-viewer, I discovered recently. This is what I was looking for. YouTube-viewer is a little command line tool for searching video’s on YouTube. With different options, you can filter your search, bookmark, download, etc. Ok, let see.

[The video contains]

A. Installing youtube-viewer.

Code: Select all

$ yay youtube-viewer

B. Edit .conf and show aliases.

1. Edit YouTube-viewer.conf, to show more hits [default is 20], I choose 50. 100 not alloud.

Code: Select all

$ alias yvc='nano ~/.config/youtube-viewer/youtube-viewer.conf'
2. Search for playlist on youtube (-p=playlist | -C=color);)

Code: Select all

$ alias yvpl='youtube-viewer -p -C'
3. search for individual video (-C=color)

Code: Select all

$ alias yvpl='youtube-viewer -p -C'

update

I am focused on working with the terminal at the moment and didn't see Youtube-viewer installs a Gui too.
It did't work right away for me . I had to install

1. extra/perl-file-sharedir 1.116-2 (13.4 KiB 24.0 KiB)

Code: Select all

$ yay perl-file-sharedir
Though working from terminal works fine.
