Hey friends. What's the quickest way for me to get a headless linux box to be able to play audio (say, from Youtube Music?) on a pair of speakers?

I was thinking about setting up a chromecast target - but seems like all of the solutions I've found require installing Chrome (which would just open a whole can of depends I don't need).

I'm way out of the media game - so you might be thinking "surely he's thought of ______" - I assure you, I have not! Send any and all suggestions!


@funnylookinhat I remembered there is a project for the Raspberry Pi that seemed to fit the bill for what you are looking for, but I can't remember the name 🤔

@RyuKurisu I thought so too - and I've been googling around and it seems there _were_ a lot of projects, but most of them are no longer maintained or won't work with official google SDKs.

After I found this thread I stopped trying to figure out how to make that work: raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtop
