RaspberryPI xbmc-send - Playing Youtube videos from laptop

If we are watching some youtube videos on our laptop or desktop and want to push that video to RaspberryPI we can follow the following steps.

1. Install xbmc-send software on our system where we are watching youtube.
2. Next copy paste the code from [1] and replace RaspberryPI_ip with your RaspberryPI IP address.
3. Next make the script executable with "chmod +x" Then call it with youtube url as parameter for it.
