I am trying to add playback of youtube videos to my application. I rely 
on youtube-dl to obtain the urls of the video and audio. This works 
rather well except when faced with a DASH video/audio. I do not know how 
to parse the output of youtube-dl -J in that case.  Also, I know ffmpeg 
supports DASH playback by itself but don't know how do I provide that to 
ffmpeg.  Does anyone know how to use youtube-dl to feed ffplay (for 
example) for dash playback?
