The title says it all -- this is a project to try to make YouTube work on retro computers.
It's geared towards 32-bit Windows on Pentium/MMX and up, PII or PIII recommended.
Basically, on your host server, it spawns a VLC process to transcode the YouTube video to a simple MPEG-1 format.
Right now it is very simple in that it only works for ONE client at a time. If you start a new video it destroys the old VLC process and starts a new one.
At some point I will change it so it will work for multiple clients at once, but it's only in the testing stages right now.
Clone the GitHub repo and try it out! https://github.com/keenmaster486/retro-video-server
