YouTube Terminal will play the first found search result:
$ youtube-terminal [options] 'cyanide and happiness'
-l, --link [url] Use YouTube link instead of searching -i, --invert Invert brightness, recommended on white background --color Use 16 terminal colors [experimental] -c, --contrast [percent] Adjust video contrast [default: 35] -w, --width [number] ASCII video character width -m, --mute Disable audio playback --fps [number] Adjust playback frame rate -h, --help Display this usage information
