yplayer v0.2.5

Listen to/watch youtube videos from the CLI!


yplayer in urxvt
I initially made this player called gplayer, where the cli app used the Grooveshark database to get some music playing in your terminal. The project was deprecated after the close of Grooveshark (rip). But after all this happened I still needed a music player for my cli, so I made this. y(outube)player, it uses the same principles as gplayer, but now with youtube as a source.


npm install yplayer -g
