Feature: Open ytdl: links

It is nice to be able to watch YouTube (and other online videos) in a local player -- you might already have familiar keybindings, subtitle settings etc. CloudTube is a nice way to browse YouTube, however.

I propose a ytdl: "protocol" which works like this: when user opens a link of form ytdl:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=123456, player opens https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=123456 using the built-in youtube-dl handler.

There's two ways CloudTube could support this:

  1. adding a configuration option that replaces the player with a huge ytdl: link,

  2. or just adding the link in the .button-container below the video.

What do you think?
