Certainly no plans to rebrand despite the current name having become increasingly inaccurate as more functionality is added. Wish I'd thought ahead on that one! Smile

Yeah bit tricky I guess.

Yeah I wasn't suggesting it's not already but hmmm, you might regret offering to accept new feature requests, LOL. Smile

Actually that reminds me ... not necessarily a new feature request, but when doing cleans like vclean, can the video title be output along with the id? Hopefully this doesn't require much code or slow things down.

Code:
$ ./texturecache.py play https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qT4e91vR4Qo

Edit: I'm guessing the https might be the first stumbling block?

Thanks!

Indeed it does! Thanks. So this highlights my thinking about kinda re-jigging the tool's erm, image / orientation, something like that. Despite your great ---help inline documentation, there appears to be so much that can be done with texturecache / the JSON-RPC API, that is unknown unless people read this thread and reading threads this long is quite a task Smile I wonder if there's a more focused and simpler way to document handy tasks that can be completed with texturecache? Some sort of how-to or whatnot? Wish I had a more specific idea but without wanting to criticize existing efforts, I do think this great tool could do with more/simpler/different documentation in some sort of tips and tricks format. Maybe I should start a blog? Nah, doesn't seem right. Some pages in your GitHub repo? Maybe?!!
