Workaround for Scripting Youtube on Chromecast

To my knowledge, no unofficial APIs for Chromecast can play Youtube videos like the app does. However, streaming local media still works.

The current solution is to pipe the video from youtube-dl:

youtube-dl -o - https://youtu.be/dQw4w9WgXcQ | castnow -

This specific workaround uses youtube-dl and castnow.
