Make sure you have mpd installed first. Setup correctly and running.
I wont cover how to do this, mpd can be tricky.

Hovering over the artwork makes the player display. Clicking makes the player persistent.
Press the + to show all songs in the current playlist.

This is currently unable to modify the playlist.

Normal uninstall via pip, pip uninstall impd


I should have probably told you how to get the development branch. You can download it from  /   chose whichever format most suits you.

Extract it and you will need to run   pip3 install . --user   in the root directory of the project (the directory with the to install the dev version. (This will install it over your current version)

Alright, I've implemented your download as audio idea into the development branch of ytsearch.

It attempts to download the best audio version. Sometimes downloading a webm with no video. Still a huge save on space.

I installed this on an Ubuntu MATE machine.  Very nice!   :up:

A couple of things that I had to do before using this:  1) find ytsearch (wasn't automatically added to path) and 2) dig into the source to find where cache was kept.  The keybindings are fairly intuitive, but a couple didn't work as expected...still getting used to it.

I really like how quickly this can search and download videos.  And it's extremely easy to queue and play cached videos.  However, this seems like something I would use primarily to build an audio library.  It's simple enough to play audio from the cached videos, but space could be saved by just downloading audio instead of video.

If you are taking wish list requests, it would be nice to be nice to have a keybinding for downloading audio.

Thanks for sharing this!   :Thmbsup:

Ill certainly think about having the option to download as audio. It is a good idea.

You can rebind all the keys at will, so feel free to mess with the settings ( press ? while in the program ) the cache location is also in the settings there.
If it complains you don't have any editor set you can close the program then edit  ~/.ytsearch/settings.yaml  to get the same effect.

They are rather similar, However this is another project.

The other one was made to keep track of certain youtube users' videos. This one doesn't do that. It just searches youtube for queries you input.

This one is a whole lot more mature too, you can listen / watch the video right from the program, the other one you couldn't.

edit: Wonder over to the IRC if you want a more in-depth discussion of the differences. ;)
