How to Use the Screen Command in Linux

Screen is a terminal program in Linux which allows us to use a virtual (VT100 terminal) as full-screen window manager which multiplexes an open physical terminal between multiple processes, which are typically, interactive shells. It allows us to access multiple terminal sessions within a single terminal or a remote terminal session. It is most useful when addressing multiple Linux shell commands on the command line, as well as separating commands from the shell that started the commands.

Screen also allows a user to initiate a command from one terminal, disconnect from that terminal, and then reconnect from a different location to that same terminal, while using a different terminal without having to restart the command. This simply lets a user better control multiple and separate command windows.

Screen also lets multiple remote computers connect to the same screen session at once. This allows multiple users to connect to the same screen session allowing a second user to follow along with another administrator working on a server.

Project Folder Structure:

Before we start coding let us take a look at the project folder structure. We create a project folder called – ‘Custom Video Player’. Inside this folder, we have three files. The first file is index.html which is the HTML document. Next, we have style.css which is the stylesheet. Finally, we have script.js which is the script file.

HTML:

We start with the HTML code. First, copy the code below and paste it into your HTML document.

<!DOCTYPE html>

Javascript:

Lastly, we add functionality to our custom video player using Javascript. Once again copy the code below and paste it into your script file.
We do this in fourteen steps:
Create initial references.
Implement slider()
Detect device type.
Implement functionality for the play and pause button.
Hide/Show playback speed options
Function to set playback speed.
Logic to mute video.
Function to set Fullscreen.
Function to exit Fullscreen.
Create a function to format the current time & maximum time.
Create a function to update progress & timer.
Implement a click event on the progress bar.
Function on window load.
