It is nice to be able to watch YouTube (and other online videos) in a local player -- you might already have familiar keybindings, subtitle settings etc. CloudTube is a nice way to browse YouTube, however.
I propose a
ytdl: "protocol" which works like this: when user opens a
link of form
ytdl:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=123456, player opens
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=123456 using the built-in youtube-dl handler.
There's two ways CloudTube could support this:
adding a configuration option that replaces the player with
or just adding the link in the
.button-container below the video.
What do you think?
