A simple YouTube jukebox for ComSSA LANs.

Users submit recommendations as a dump of YouTube URLs, and they are approved by Lyle (or whoever is running the projector computer), all while the playlist is automatically being fed through to a player.

Running directly from source

To run Lyletube from source, install Python 2.7 and pip.

Then install dependencies with pip install -r requirements.txt.

Finally, run to start the server. You can optionally supply the port to listen on as the first argument (e.g. 8080), but the default is port 13337.

Skype users, please note that ports 80 and 443 are taken by default; you will need to turn off "Use 80 and 443 for incoming connections" and restart Skype to use those ports.

If you're using Debian, Ubuntu or relatives, setup might look like this:

apt-get install git build-essential python python-dev python-pip
git clone git://
cd lyletube
pip install -r requirements.txt

How to build a standalone executable

Werkzeug does some crazy import magic that breaks PyInstaller's module detection, so please edit werkzeug's and remove everything after the line where __version__ is defined.

Download PyInstaller and in this directory, run path/to/ -F lyletube.spec.

The resulting executable will be found as dist/lyletube.exe.
