Headset is a music player for desktop that is able to connect to YouTube. Users can search through YouTube’s massive collection of music, play what they find and save tracks/playlists. Headset can also read popular music subreddits and play the tracks in sequence.
To run Headset, you can download the file from the website and follow the installation instructions. Alternatively, you can follow the instructions here if you prefer to build it from source.
