As you saw in my previous post / video, I was running Youtube videos in fullscreen on my little display. I was using an application (really just a 2000+ line perl script) that does this for me. The program is called youtube-viewer (github)
Gcala posted a nice guide on how to set it up and has given me permission to also repost it here. I’m making some modifications as I had to do a couple changes, but it works.
- sudo apt-get install gcc-4.7
- export CC=gcc-4.7
- export CXX=g++-4.7
- sudo apt-get install libwww-perl
- sudo cpan -i XML::Fast
- sudo wget https://github.com/downloads/ssilverm/youtube-viewer/youtube-viewer -O /usr/bin/youtube-viewer
- sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/youtube-viewer
Now just type youtube-viewer on the command line and you are good to go 🙂
