New  get_youtube-dl.tcz  for TC7 x86, simple script to create latest youtube-dl.tcz. Script output provides mediaplayer stream example plus links to youtube-dl homepage, supported sites, README. Re-run 'get_youtube-dl' for subsequent update checks, updates typically released weekly, but only required if youtube.com or your favourite site stops working.

Note get_youtube-dl.tcz tested on only one system, please PM regarding bugs or problems, thanks.

Compiling MPlayer natively on the target system along with using youtube-dl seems an unbeatable performance combination. Was thinking of submitting a custom compile mplayer script that would download latest source, allow user to select from the most important compile options, create sane default config, etc ... or not :)
