Video format/quality that is directly passed to youtube-dl. The possible values are
specific to the website and the video, for a given url the available formats can be
found with the command youtube-dl --list-formats URL. See youtube-dl's
documentation for available aliases. To use experimental DASH support for
youtube, use bestvideo+bestaudio. (Default: best)

No, wait. It *does* work! But you have to put it in reverse order. This works:
This uses [email protected] on YouTube (or 30FPS if the video isn't 60; it picks the DASH video and audio streams in any case though), but still picks the "best" stream on other sites.
