Don't worry, we will not load the proprietary JavaScript, as shr (which
is the program that motivated me to work on this feature) is incapable
of running any JavaScript at all.

OTOH, that may actually be simple to implement, depending on the
interface exposed by invidious.

There are also programs such as youtube-dl, which allow to view YouTube
videos without running any JavaScript.

Perhaps we could use their interface instead, which other free software
such as mpv already makes use of.

But this is becoming something of a tangent.
