With Minimal Kiosk Browser you can go to a Youtube video page and start playing the video by cklicking on the play icon in the toolbar. youtube-dl must be installed. The video will be played full screen with omxplayer. The video files are not permanently saved on your computer but buffered in a fifo and played from there.
Minimal Kiosk Browser (kweb)
Slim, fast webkit browser with support for audio+video+playlists+youtube+pdf+download
Optional fullscreen kiosk mode and command interface for embedded applications
Includes omxplayerGUI, an X front end for omxplayer
