If you encounter "Video url not found" or any breaking issue, then make sure you are on latest version by typing
sudo ani-cli -U to update on Linux, Mac and Android. On Windows, run gitbash as administrator then there type
If after this the issue persists then open an issue.
Otherwise you're likely to see an error like the following:
"/usr/bin/ani-cli: line 470: (...)/player_mpv: No such file or directory"
Native packages have a more robust update cycle, but sometimes they are slow to upgrade. If the one for your platform is up-to-date we suggest going with it.
wget -qO- https://Wiener234.github.io/ani-cli-ppa/KEY.gpg | sudo tee /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/ani-cli.asc wget -qO- https://Wiener234.github.io/ani-cli-ppa/ani-cli-debian.list | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ani-cli-debian.list sudo apt update sudo apt install ani-cli
To install mpv (and vlc) you need RPM Fusion free enabled. Simply follow the instructions here: https://rpmfusion.org/Configuration To be able to install syncplay, you'll need to enable this copr repo (instructions included): https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/batmanfeynman/syncplay/.
To install ani-cli:
sudo dnf copr enable derisis13/ani-cli sudo dnf install ani-cli
If for your distro uses rpm and you would like to see a native package, open an issue.
Build and install from the AUR:
yay -S ani-cli
Also consider ani-cli-git
On Suse the provided MPV and VLC packages are missing features that are used by ani-cli. The only required is the "Only Essentials" repository which has versions for each Suse release. You can find instructions on this here.
To add the ani-cli copr repo, update then install ani-cli run (on both versions):
zypper addrepo https://download.copr.fedorainfracloud.org/results/derisis13/ani-cli/opensuse-tumbleweed-x86_64/ ani-cli zypper dup zypper install ani-cli
You'll get a warning about
Signature verification failed [4-Signatures public key is not available] but this can be ignored from the prompt.
Note: package is noarch, so any architecture should work, even though the repo is labled x86-64
Install dependencies (See below)
sudo rm -rf "/usr/local/share/ani-cli" "/usr/local/bin/ani-cli" "/usr/local/bin/UI" /usr/local/bin/player_* #If some of these aren't found, it's not a problem git clone "https://github.com/pystardust/ani-cli.git" && cd ./ani-cli sudo cp ./ani-cli /usr/local/bin cd .. && rm -rf "./ani-cli"
Also note that mpv installed through flatpak is not compatible
Install dependencies (See below)
Install HomeBrew if not installed.
rm -rf "$(brew --prefix)/share/ani-cli" "$(brew --prefix)/bin/ani-cli" "$(brew --prefix)/bin/UI" "$(brew --prefix)"/bin/player_* #If some of these aren't found, it's not a problem git clone "https://github.com/pystardust/ani-cli.git" && cd ./ani-cli cp ./ani-cli "$(brew --prefix)"/bin cd .. && rm -rf ./ani-cli
To install (with Homebrew) the dependencies required on Mac OS, you can run:
brew install curl grep axel [email protected] ffmpeg git && \ brew install --cask iina
Why iina and not mpv? Drop-in replacement for mpv for MacOS. Integrates well with OSX UI. Excellent support for M1. Open Source.
Make sure git bash is installed (Install)
Note that the installation instruction below must be done inside Git Bash, not in Command Prompt or Powershell
mpv is not added to $PATH automatically when installed and thus the script is unable to use it. You either have to do this manually, or install it via scoop (recommended):
scoop install mpv
scoop bucket add extras scoop install ani-cli
rm -rf "/usr/local/share/ani-cli" "/usr/local/bin/ani-cli" "/usr/local/bin/UI" /usr/local/bin/player_* #If some of these aren't found, it's not a problem git clone "https://github.com/pystardust/ani-cli.git" && cd ./ani-cli cp ./ani-cli /usr/bin cd .. && rm -rf ./ani-cli
Run ani-cli in Git Bash (Running it in cmd or powershell may or may not work)
Install termux (Guide)
pkg up -y pkg install ani-cli
pkg up -y rm -rf "$PREFIX/share/ani-cli" "$PREFIX/bin/ani-cli" "$PREFIX/bin/UI" "$PREFIX"/local/bin/player_* #If some of these aren't found, it's not a problem git clone "https://github.com/pystardust/ani-cli.git" && cd ./ani-cli cp ./ani-cli "$PREFIX"/bin cd .. && rm -rf ./ani-cli
Note : Vlc Android now works too ;)
You need to add any referrer in mpv by opening mpv (playstore version), going into Settings -> Advanced -> Edit mpv.conf and adding (for example):
sudo apt remove ani-cli # to remove the repository from apt: sudo rm -f /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/ani-cli.asc /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ani-cli-debian.list
sudo dnf remove ani-cli # for ani-cli # disable the repo in dnf dnf copr disable derisis13/ani-cli
You might want to uninstall RPM fusion if you don't use it otherwise
zypper remove ani-cli zypper removerepo ani-cli
You might want to remove
packman-essentials if you don't need it otherwise
yay -R ani-cli
scoop uninstall ani-cli
sudo rm "/usr/local/bin/ani-cli"
rm "$(brew --prefix)/bin/ani-cli"
pkg remove ani-cli
