Yes, that would be a great feature, but is not implemented yet. Feel
free to file a feature request bug report. Should be easy to do. Maybe
we can even provide (at least for gPodder 4) a feed provider that
automatically handles all services supported by youtube-dl, thereby
reducing the amount of code we need to maintain locally for
downloading from YouTube, Vimeo, etc...
