Hey. So I used to have this command line program that would allow me to type in a search term, select a number and it would play that youtube video in my default media player. I think it was youtube-dl but i'm not sure. I used to use it on Linux to play podcasts while playing euro truck but I can't find it. Thanks

I believe you were referring to MPV:

https://www.reddit.com/r/linux/comm...reaming_audio_player/?st=jb2r9sk2&sh=6f68cd8e
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/mpv-full/

And here's an alternative if you want it:
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/headset-bin/

Yes, it can stream video/audio, but not to the default media player automatically, you must specify the media player you'd like to use if you use that.
It's what he specifically asked for. Not to mention one can just create an alias so the media player doesn't have to be specified each time. This, provided I'm remembering Bash correctly, just needs to be added to the OP's shell configuration. The video player can be changed accordingly.
alias aliasname='youtube-dl -o - "$1" | vlc -'
