YouTube Audio Skill - testing and feedback


Mycroft skill to play audio from YouTube, using the Common Play Framework.

This is heavily based on the excellent I Heart Radio and Tunein skills by johnbartkiw.

It uses Mycroft’s VlcService for playback, and pafy / youtube-dl to fetch media details.

It’s still a bit of a mess, but the basics work.
