FS#1133 - [youtube-dl] replace avideo-lts with youtube-dl

Please, replace avideo-lts with youtube-dl. avideo-lts haven’t seen any updates for almost a year and is probably abandoned. Also Stallman confirmed youtube-dl doesn’t execute any non-free JavaScript, so its inclusion doesn’t go against Social Contract.

YouTube-DL parses and runs non-free bytecode, you can see here for reference:

We will be continuing avideo patches in hypervideo.
