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 You can use mpv to play audio files even if there's no screen.

@funnylookinhat and it works on youtube links when you have yt-dl.
