    So calming... that would also be great as a screensaver.

      I would love having an XScreenSaver hack that could be pointed at a YouTube livestream (or be provided a list of them that it would randomly choose from). Bonus points would be given for adding this to the various photo hacks (Carousel, etc) that already exist so that livestreams would be mixed in with the other displayed media.

        I would like that too but it's basically impossible in half a dozen ways. However,

          Much sadness.

          And yes, SpaceSquids is one of the several hacks that may be randomly selected.

        You should be able to combine streamlink (or its undermaintained predecessor livestreamer, in case you already have that installed) with the instructions in the XScreenSaver FAQ for playing a video as a screensaver.

        In other words, this completely untested pipeline should work:

        streamlink --stdout https://youtu.be/0QH58nc6xGU best | mpv --really-quiet --no-audio --fs --no-stop-screensaver --wid=$XSCREENSAVER_WINDOW -

        This won't help the video get fed into the photo hacks -- though I'd love to be able to watch YouTube videos in XAnalogTV -- but you should at least be able to have a YouTube video or livestream as your screensaver.

    We were just there. I took many jelly photos. Jellycam is even better.
