As the title says, I am looking for a hardware accelerated youtube playback solution inside the Raspbian operating system (Pixel/Jessie). Suggestions offered on the Rpi forums have been un-solutiony.
Help?

Its not going to be native, but people use youtube-dl to snag feeds and watch them in an accelerated fashion in the media player of choice.

I haven't looked to see if its accelerated but you can also try the youtube plugin for Kodi

Youtube plugin for Kodi inside LibreElec works great but keeps telling me I've reached my daily limit. IDK what's going on. I was hoping to be able to do vid playback properly inside Raspbian.

how do I get youtube dl? SUDO APT-GET YOUTUBE-DL?

I'd need to save to USB. Only have a 16GB SD card. How would I do that?

there is a PPA for it in Ubuntu
Code:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install youtube-dl
