Idiotbox to watch youtube without a browser

Install idiotbox.

git clone git://
cd frontends

As you can see, there's more than Youtube.

Now, install mpv, yt-dlp and pick:

pkg_add mpv yt-dlp pick

mpv is the video player, yt-dlp download the video and pick gives a nice selection menu.

Now, search a video, then enjoy it without any browser.

./youtube/cli -t scilabus | cut -f2- | pick | awk '{print $1}' |xargs mpv



Once again, Hiltjo Posthuma did an amazing work. I'm impressed by its code and have to read it carefully to improve my poor C skills.

I'd like to see it ported on OpenBSD too.
