www/youtube_dl is almost stopped in development, no tagged releases since June,
Since mpv-0.34, if yt-dlp installed it will be used used by default at runtime.
Please, consider having yt-dlp as runtime dependency instead of youtube_dl,
which is unconditional dependency in port, as well as binary package pulls in
youtube_dl due to this. yt-dlp is an actively maintained fork of youtube_dl.
