Description

Youtube follows html5 concept. They don't send 1080p content in muxed files anymore. Instead the player should mix two urls one of which is video and other audio. API need some way to play this like:

page.source = "videoparams:" + showtime.JSONEncode({
    sources: [{
      url: "http://videoUrl",
      audio: "http://audioUrl" 
    }]
  });

Are we then able to watch 1080p Youtube content again?

This is a big task. Need both fragmented mp4 player and DASH manifest decoder.

Not feasible for 4.8
