We have approved https://directory.fsf.org/wiki/Youtube-dl once again.

John Sullivan: Richard Stallman said youtube-dl is okay to be in the Directory now, the situation is not what we thought it was, it does not actually execute nonfree JS.

Can you please describe this in README.md?

You are saying that youtube-dl does not execute non-free js.

What is this? https://github.com/rg3/youtube-dl/blob/master/test/test_youtube_signature.py#L21

You know... when someone downloads a video with DRM from Youtube the previous code is executed.

Is not it obfuscated code and non-free?

And this is the file that downloads the JS non-free that performs "reverse engineering"
