      Don't bother. Use mpv, much better than the browser.

      $ mpv https://link-here-to-video

      In /etc/mpv.conf I have set:

      hwdec=auto
      fs=yes

      Which is for auto hardware decoding and yes to fullscreen. Not sure if hw dec works on Pi4, but should be there anyways.

      You won't watch videos on the web again after this. Cheers

        That is not as convenient as using the browser.

          Yeah agreed, but it's not that bad either. If you use something like a Guake dropdown terminal, you can copy the link to clipboard, hotkey your terminal, type mpv, paste link, hit enter. Lots of other features that are included in mpv also over traditional browser.

          But point taken, I'm just glad mpv exists and I'm not sure enough people are using it.

            ROFL. The irony on this site is hilarious some days.

            Suggest a GPU Control Panel: We can run that from the command line. We're Power Users with Terminals.

            Run a Video From a Terminal: That's too much work.
