Firstly, I think the point about youtube-dl executing nonfree JS may
have been exaggerated.  I'll refer you to [0], [1], and [2].


Aside from using youtube-dl, I can think of two other ways:

1. using LibreJS + ViewTube, both shipped with GNU IceCat, one can watch
youtube videos without running nonfree JS, or

2. using an alternative frontend to youtube like Invidious, you can
watch the above video at (the
"official" Invidious instance) without running nonfree JS.
