peertube-viewer-rs is a small utility to enable you to browse videos available on any PeerTube instances, without having to launch a web browser. It is heavily inspired from youtube-viewer.


Here is a screenshot of a basic usage of peertube-viewer-rs. When launching you are prompted with a search input. Once a search is done, you can either select one of the results by writing the corresponding number or do another search by typing anything else. When you chose to play a video, it will be launched in a video player (mpv by default)

peertube-viewer and peertube-viewer-rs

peertube-viewer-rs is a rewrite in rust of peertube-viewer. Though the implementation language doesn't matter for the end user, the name has been changed since breaking changes have been introduced, mainly in the configuration.
