depends on the provider, if they only offer hls then you will need ffmpeg.
even with youtube dash (audio and video seperate) dl is internal core, and only muxed together as a single volume.
hls currently is wrapped into ffmpeg, and this handles the download and muxing as download progresses.
If we did handle the dl ourselves we might be able to increase download speeds, and either mux at the end or as we go (Im assuming this is possible). At the end would require 2x filesize (dl segments > mux into single volume > delete segments).

currently not possible to process the ffmpeg task remotely, it would be easier for you to dl on your remote system to your nas over the network and then shut down on completion if you require the additional cpu power.

Don't fight the system, use it to your advantage. :]
