YouTube Audio Playlist Extension

This app aims to allow users to play the audio stream from songs (or any video really) on YouTube and add them to playlists. It will be a Chrome extension and will act as a media player, but only uses the audio from YouTube without ever needing to open the page (Chrome must be open, must open YT to add the video to the playlist the first time). This causes less of a hassle for users, as the video will not need to be played, and an entire page does not have to load just to play the next song.

Requirements are as follows:

Must be able to stream audio from YouTube (must not output video)

Must be able to play audio in background

Must be lightweight (can be played without YT page open)

Must be able to add songs to playlists using YT URLs with your custom name

Must be able to save playlists (either to an account or to browser custom data)

Must be able to play, pause, change volume, skip track, seek

Must be able to add multiple playlists, as well as rearrange them, and delete them

(Optional) toast window to show current track being played

(Optional) queue up load time for next track for seamless transitions

(Optional) crossfade option

(Optional) queue up multiple playlists

(Optional) shuffle, repeat, repeat single

How fast songs load is independent of the program (depends on net speed)

The GUI must be intuitive enough for the average user to use (ie. minimalist)

Acceptance Criteria:

The program will be accepted if it can play audio from selected YouTube links, and the links can be queued to play multiple tracks in a row. The audio is meant to stream, not to download the audio itself.
