I used to use ubuntu 16.04 ,but now it's 18.04 .

youtube-dl still working , but youtube-viewer can't work

I had reinstalled it , but command line showed that the ppa didn't had any release .

Is it possible to use youtube-viewer in future ?

    You'll have to ask the developer of the software for a definite answer. Try at launchpad.net. – pomsky Apr 28 '18 at 2:49

  • What is the name of the youtube-viewer and a link to the PPA? I'll see what I can find in my 18.04 environment. – L. D. James Apr 28 '18 at 16:33
  • I added the ppa via author's github github.com/trizen/youtube-viewer – choder Apr 29 '18 at 15:19

$ sudo apt install git libncurses5-dev libtinfo-dev libreadline-dev pkg-config libgtk2.0-dev libcanberra-gtk-module

Either downloading the zip from github (https://github.com/trizen/youtube-viewer) or using git clone

$ git clone https://github.com/trizen/youtube-viewer     
$ cd youtube-viewer
$ sudo cpan install CPAN ExtUtils::PkgConfig Module::Build inc::latest PAR::Dist Term::ReadLine::Gnu::XS Unicode::GCString LWP::Protocol::https Data::Dump JSON Gtk2 File::ShareDir
$ perl Build.PL --gtk
$ sudo ./Build installdeps
$ sudo ./Build install

Then, done.

$ gtk-youtube-viewer
