Striemtrien is a graphical user interface to start mpv media player without having to download videos first. Just paste a URL of a page with a video in it to play it directly!


git clone

cd Striemtrien

sudo apt install mpv python3-gi python3-pip python3-setuptools python3-wheel

sudo -H pip3 install youtube-dl



Open the application, paste a link, click the button.


As the URL’s of streaming sites change often, Striemtrien requires an up-to-date youtube-dl script. The best way is to use pip as described above.

youtube-dl can be updated with pip easily: sudo -H pip3 install -U youtube-dl
