  • Happy New Year everyone! A new version (1.0.0-beta.16) is out for Linux, fixing an issue that could lock the bot up when using it with TS3. Please visit the resources section or the main page (https://www.sinusbot.com) for the new package.

How can I playback audio from streaming sites?

Answer

You can install youtube-dl and configure the bot to use it. Afterwards you are able to playback URLs from every source youtube-dl supports. However, there will be no support for youtube-dl related issues.
  • Download youtube-dl from the website (the version of your linux distribution is probably outdated)
  • edit the config.ini and change YoutubeDLPath = "" to YoutubeDLPath = "/your/path/to/youtube-dl"
On launch the bot will tell you if it found youtube-dl and if it’s compatible.

Some websites don't allow downloading, so make sure you don't use the bot for those sites.
