Disable videos in YouTube, listen to the audio only

I use YouTube as a radio, listening to a different playlist every time. I don't watch, I just listen.

If audio only is not possible, can I at least specify a very small screen size?

I guess small phones use an API that I could use as well.


I have a slow connection. Never play higher-quality video.

setting is not enough.

  • This can be done with youtube-dl. For most videos, the command to download the best audio stream is youtube-dl -f 141 $URL. – Sam Watkins Jan 24 '16 at 23:16
