I'm using this command to watch youtube videos from command line

youtube-dl https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=19jv0HM92kw -o - | mplayer -vo caca   -

and I find it very amusing. However the player only shows on portion of my screen and I can't figure out on how to change the screen dimentions, as the mplayer arguments dont work (probably need to find how to pass arguments to libaa caca driver). Anyone?


Set CACA_GEOMETRY environment before run mplayer, like:

youtube-dl https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=19jv0HM92kw -o - | CACA_GEOMETRY=80x25 mplayer -vo caca   -

(google power, 1st hit: http://www.mplayerhq.hu/DOCS/HTML/en/caca.html )
