Overview

I wanted to create this application so that I could use the command line to play music easily. I often play games and listen to music simultaneously but using either Spotify or playing music in a browser takes much-needed resources from my CPU and RAM.

I have spent a lot of time looking through numerous CLI based music players. But they either required setting up lots of things, needed premium features to function or sometimes flat out didn't work even after tinkering with them for hours. Hence I thought that instead of looking for a solution, I should code it myself.

So I present to you JAKYM, Just Another Konsole YouTube-Music.

Screenshot

Usage

  • Run the program by using jakym command jakym or alternatively call it as a python module python -m jakym
  • This will open up the jakym command window.
  • Type spotify to play music using spotify playlist
  • Type youtube to play music using youtube playlist
  • Enter a songname in command window to search for song or just enter its youtube link to play directly from a link.
  • Jakym will queue the song once you type it and allow you to add the next song.
  • Type shuffle to shuffle your queue
  • The queue operates independent of the command window and plays the song on a separate thread.
  • To exit the command window and hence the application simply type exit.

Installation

To Update jakym simply run pip install --upgrade jakym

Installing ffmpeg

ffmpeg is required for this program to work correctly. Install ffmpeg by following these steps :-

Installing simpleaudio

simpleaudio is an optional pydub dependency, however as it is essential for proper working of jakym. Not installing simpleaudio gives major issues on both Linux and Windows.

On Linux

  • Install Dependencies by sudo apt-get install -y python3-dev libasound2-dev
  • Install with: pip install simpleaudio

On Windows

  • Download the .whl file of simpleaudio from here
  • Once downloaded, it can be installed using the following command : pip install package_name.whl

Installing jakym

  • Install by using pypi :-pip install jakym

  • Run using jakym command jakym or call it as a python module python -m jakym

Violla jakym is now installed!

Enjoy jakym

How It Works

  • The program starts and runs two threads, one to input music into the playlist and the other to iterate over the playlist and download the corresponding music and play it.
  • The youtube-dl library does most of the heavy lifting of both parsing links and downloading them into a suitable file format.
  • The pydub and simpleaudio libraries provide cross-platform audio playback without any issues but setting up simpleaudio on windows and Linux take a different approach.
  • The program runs until user specifically types exit.

    How to properly exit?

    I currently using ctrl-c to exit the application. I have to press it twice for some reason (maybe something to do with the threads). Is there a better way to exit?

  • Simple and very useful!

    Simple and very useful!

    I was having some problems with spotify, and I was about to search for replacement players that doesn't require premium account, this program is perfect, I can play youtube songs and spotify songs! and through the command line!

    • I would suggest adding the ability to play a playlist with a single command, without the need to run the program then type spotify then type the playlist link, this will be very useful
    • adding skipping songs and looping playlist.

    if you accept PR I would be happy to try to contribute!

    errors with the playlist feauture

    Hi I have installed JAKYM with yay from AUR on a arch64 machine. While trying to play a playlist this happens: jakym -y https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLz4zPQvMRasSJ6c6HXjm3qRSs2shSlqHg - by Lex Pinging Youtube Processing Song: 1/5 Traceback (most recent call last): File "/home/jirido/.local/bin/jakym", line 8, in sys.exit(main()) File "/home/jirido/.local/lib/python3.9/site-packages/jakym/main.py", line 190, in main playyoutube(args.y) File "/home/jirido/.local/lib/python3.9/site-packages/jakym/main.py", line 25, in playyoutube tempytplaylist,beg=downloader.ytplaylistparser(link,beg) File "/home/jirido/.local/lib/python3.9/site-packages/jakym/downloader.py", line 56, in ytplaylistparser for song in meta['entries']: UnboundLocalError: local variable 'meta' referenced before assignment

    If I try from within almost the same happens. ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– - by Lex youtube Enter Playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLz4zPQvMRasSJ6c6HXjm3qRSs2shSlqHg Pinging Youtube Processing Song: 1/5 Exception in thread Thread-2: Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/lib/python3.9/threading.py", line 973, in _bootstrap_inner self.run() File "/usr/lib/python3.9/threading.py", line 910, in run self._target(*self._args, **self._kwargs) File "/home/jirido/.local/lib/python3.9/site-packages/jakym/main.py", line 136, in queue playyoutube(ytplaylist) File "/home/jirido/.local/lib/python3.9/site-packages/jakym/main.py", line 25, in playyoutube tempytplaylist,beg=downloader.ytplaylistparser(link,beg) File "/home/jirido/.local/lib/python3.9/site-packages/jakym/downloader.py", line 56, in ytplaylistparser for song in meta['entries']: UnboundLocalError: local variable 'meta' referenced before assignment File "/usr/lib/python3.9/threading.py", line 910, in run self._target(*self._args, **self._kwargs) File "/home/jirido/.local/lib/python3.9/site-packages/jakym/main.py", line 136, in queue playyoutube(ytplaylist) File "/home/jirido/.local/lib/python3.9/site-packages/jakym/main.py", line 25, in playyoutube tempytplaylist,beg=downloader.ytplaylistparser(link,beg) File "/home/jirido/.local/lib/python3.9/site-packages/jakym/downloader.py", line 56, in ytplaylistparser for song in meta['entries']: UnboundLocalError: local variable 'meta' referenced before assignment

    Something strange also happens when trying to find a song. $ jakym bumblebee Downloading bumblebee song WARNING: Unable to download webpage: HTTP Error 429: Too Many Requests

    then it succeeds.

    If i try to play one song it works but maybe related to the playlist problem it also tells me: - by Lex https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TJ8ws2dqqFg Downloading https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TJ8ws2dqqFg song WARNING: Unable to download webpage: HTTP Error 429: Too Many Requests

    And if I search for a song - by Lex hooker Downloading hooker song WARNING: Unable to download webpage: HTTP Error 429: Too Many Requests ERROR: No video formats found; please report this issue on https://yt-dl.org/bug . Make sure you are using the latest version; see https://yt-dl.org/update on how to update. Be sure to call youtube-dl with the --verbose flag and include its complete output. Error downloading hooker song

    but then it manages anyway.. Done Downloading Currently Playing : Lex and jack (music video Do I do something wrong or am I missing some dependency?

  • "the command 'pip' is not found... " in ubuntu 20.04

    When I type pip install simpleaudio or pip --version "the command 'pip' is not found... " Maybe why I never run python 2. Could you cover it in readme for new users that have this problem? Any workaround would be good too. Thank you for the create this!

    make downloads an actual Temp directory

    currently downloads is created wherever the program is called from, this leads to sometimes issues like no proper cleanup in case of exception and also proves to be difficult to manage.

    (I'm not sure but I think these features improve QOL :D)

    Volume

    Adjust the music's volume. (not per session maybe put it in config file)

    Output Device Changer

    Some users might have more than 1 output device (or virtual devices) it'll be great to be able to change output device.
