FreshRSS - YouTube video extension

This FreshRSS extension allows you to directly watch YouTube/PeerTube videos from within subscribed channel feeds.

To use it, upload the xExtension-YouTube directory to the FreshRSS ./extensions directory on your server and enable it on the extension panel in FreshRSS.

Installation

The first step is to put the extension into your FreshRSS extension directory:

cd /var/www/FreshRSS/extensions/
wget https://github.com/kevinpapst/freshrss-youtube/archive/master.zip
unzip master.zip
mv freshrss-youtube-master/xExtension-YouTube .
rm -rf freshrss-youtube-master/

Then switch to your browser https://localhost/FreshRSS/p/i/?c=extension and activate it.

Features

  • Embeds Youtube videos directly in FreshRSS, instead of linking to the Youtube page
  • Simplifies the subscription to channel URLs by automatically detecting the channels feed URL

You can simply add Youtube video subscriptions by pasting URLs like:

  • https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCwbjxO5qQTMkSZVueqKwxuw
  • https://www.youtube.com/user/AndrewTrials
