Play online music videos in terminal

pvl() { (for i in "$@"; do youtube-dl -q --max-downloads 1 --no-playlist "$i" -o - | mplayer -vo null /dev/fd/3 3<&0 </dev/tty; sleep .5; done); }
pvl 'link1' 'link2' 'link3' Play Youtube, Vimeo, etc links without visual elements. Great for music videos when you just want the audio. You can control mplayer with this! Hit Ctrl-C twice to exit (if you're playing multiple files)

I'm not sure if it's legal to play casino games. Thank you for writing this post since it clarifies a lot of facts about internet music videos in the terminal have a peek here. I'm also looking for a way for us to play jungle jam slots at an online casino. Do you have any idea what I'm referring?
