This is an experiment in using Chrome's Puppeteer to download YouTube videos by letting them play and stitching together the `videoplayback` responses.
The responses have a `rn` parameter (as well as a `range` one) which could be used to ensure they are stiched together in order.
The video could be seeked through in order to speed up the download while still acting almost indistinguishably from a real user to YouTube.
## Results
Turns out default Chromium bundled with Puppeteer doesn't support non-free media formats (should have thought about that).
It will play VP8 and VP9 though.
