Looks pretty solid from the video, but the demo could’ve included playing a video - it’s pretty much the most important thing, IMO.

The README is also missing an “Installation” section. Probably someone will find this great enough to package in nix since it’s a Go program. on 27 Nov 2023 05:47 collapse

The installation instructions are covered in the project website (here), and yes, I will update the demo video to show playing a YouTube video from an instance. on 27 Nov 2023 18:28 collapse

IMO, the installation instructions should be either right on the homepage or behind text that alludes to installation e.g “Installation instructions”, “Download Here”, “Get It Here”, etc. I did not expect it to be under “View Documentation”. My first thought was “No installation instructions? This probably means it’s another one of those ‘just make install and you’re done’ programs”. on 29 Nov 2023 04:04 collapse

Noted. I will edit the README to indicate where the installation and other instructions are.
