How to listen youtube videos on termux

You need termux installed on your android

Run these commands on your android

pkg install mpv termux-api neovim python pipx
pipx install yturl  
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Note: "pipx — Install and Run Python Applications in Isolated Environments"

Put this code on your ~/.bashrc (android). I was using an aliased neovim on my android, but now I figured out how to make it easier with here documments.

cat <<-'EOF' >> ~/.bashrc
yt(){
    mpv --no-video "$(yturl $(termux-clipboard-get))"
}
EOF
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Now when watching youtube videos you can chose share and get the link, then open your termux and type

yt
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Using pure mpv

mpv --no-video url
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

full python support for neovim

pipx install neovim
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

🌚 Browsing with dark mode makes you a better developer.

It's a scientific fact.
