Streamus is an open-source Chrome extension[1] that allows one to save YouTube videos as a playlist to listen to as music. By using Streamus, users can simply find the YouTube video they wish to listen to, save the video into a playlist, and play the video without visuals. Essentially, Streamus acts as a music player for YouTube without having YouTube open. The extension will also find and play related videos for the listener.

History[edit]

The Chrome Extension was originally created by Sean Anderson when he realized it was frustrating to always save certain YouTube videos he wanted to watch. Eventually, he created Streamus to make YouTube streaming more convenient.[2][3][4]

Operation[edit]

Streamus features include the ability to search for YouTube videos and create playlists, keyboard shortcuts, Beatport integration, and Omnibox integration.[5] Omnibox Integration allows a user in Chrome to search using Streamus with the URL address bar. By typing "Streamus" and hitting tab, a user can search for YouTube videos and add them to a Streamus playlist.[6]
