Disclaimer

The experience will be degraded unless these external dependencies are installed: “psutil”, “pulsectl”, “pyalsaaudio”, “pylirc2”, and “Pillow”. Another helpful utility is “unclutter”, which automatically hides the mouse pointer. (On a Debian-based system, run “sudo apt-get install -y python-pip python-psutil python-alsaaudio python-pylirc python-pil unclutter && sudo pip install pulsectl”). Finally, a theme with a large mouse pointer will improve pointer visibility, (e.g., https://www.gnome-look.org/p/999574/).

Description

The most powerful way to access content on Netflix and YouTube and Amazon Instant Video would be a web browser, if web browsers provided good native support for a 10-foot user interface. This add-on launches a browser and connects the arrow buttons on the remote control to the mouse pointer. This is the most user-friendly way to consume online content without needing a wireless keyboard.
