Can the Yun 'read' and activate urls?

Hi guys,
It's my first post and I'm new to Arduino so please go easy on me.

last night I got my Yun to read a twitter feed over wifi. And some people were posting links from youtube and soundcloud in there tweets.
I was wondering if it would be possible for the Yun to detect say, a url from youtube, and to 'open' it and just play the audio out of a speaker.

failing that, would there be a way for it to open the link on a computer and start playing it?

Any help or pointers in the right direction greatly appreciated.
Cheers!

The YUN includes a Linux co-processor so it could read from the URL (with the right code) but as far as I know it doesn’t have audio output capability.

To do that, the Arduino would need to send a command to the PC, and there would need to be an application on the PC to receive that command and read the corresponding URL. Your options for the PC part would depend what OS you were running on the PC. On a Windows PC, you could use Gobetwino.
