YouTube supports a single audio track in videos. So you can make two videos, one with an one without AD. Or you could use YouDescribe: http://youdescribe.ski.org/rel/

Subject: [WebAIM] YouTube and audio descriptions

Does any know if YouTube supports audio description tracks? When I go to upload I only find options for "annotations." I also can't find any documentation on it one way or the other.

I think there's a plug-in for JW Player to do this but Vimeo does not.
