Making luakit play YouTube videos

Luakit, even though it’s a quite awesome (and fast!) browser, doesn’t play YouTube videos out-of-the-box. At least, when installing it from Raspberry Pi Debian repos, it doesn’t pull the dependencies need and doesn’t even list the packages as ‘recommended’. Nowhere I could find it, but one Arch Linux forum page had a hint, which I decrypted:
Install gstreamer1.0-libav and gstreamer1.0-alsa – the latter being responsible for sound in YouTube videos.
That’s it. Hope it helps =) If you find it’s still not working for you – comment below, I’ll try to debug the issue.
