I just wanted to play it.
I downloaded it with youtube-dl -f 22 ...etc

Other players I use are
mplayer smplayer (for playlists manipulation) ...etc,
mpv, mkvmerge gui, ...etc

PS: I am usin gold version of FF because several addons I like a lot, are
not available for latest FF release, and no replacements. They have to
do with security, javascripts,  and other security plugins.
