Using a different video player
Note: Depending on the video player you use, you may not be able to play videos from all supported platforms.
Change default player (not for flatpak)
To change the default video player, use the environmental variable
PLAYER. You can for example set this variable in your
PLAYER="myplayer" to your
Changing for flatpak
Changing the default player for the flatpak is a little bit harder as the flatpak version does not have access to run arbitrary commands on the host. You will have to change that permission manually.
Changing the permissions
Depending on how you have installed the flatpak (user or system-wide) you will have to run one of the following commands. If you are unsure how you have installed it, just try out both.
flatpak --user override de.schmidhuberj.tubefeeder --talk-name=org.freedesktop.Flatpak sudo flatpak override de.schmidhuberj.tubefeeder --talk-name=org.freedesktop.Flatpak
You can check that the command worked by using
flatpak info --show-permissions de.schmidhuberj.tubefeeder
You should see:
[Session Bus Policy] org.freedesktop.Flatpak=talk
Apply the new player
You will have to set the
PLAYER variable to:
PLAYER="flatpak-spawn --host myplayer"
If you are using e.g. Clapper, you will have to set it to:
PLAYER="flatpak-spawn --host flatpak run com.github.rafostar.Clapper"
Depending on how you have installed the flatpak (user or system-wide):
flatpak --user override de.schmidhuberj.tubefeeder --env=PLAYER="flatpak-spawn --host flatpak run com.github.rafostar.Clapper"
sudo flatpak override de.schmidhuberj.tubefeeder --env=PLAYER="flatpak-spawn --host flatpak run com.github.rafostar.Clapper"
