This is bit difficult to achieve but can be done in the following way:
Add a proxy HTTP Service and configure it as below:
Enabled and allowed; from any-trusted; to ANY

On above service configure it to deny all extensions which are related to media; this service would ensure that everything from anywhere on the internet would be blocked.

Now create another HTTP service [but from packet filters (historically called filteredHTTP)] as below:
Enabled and allowed; from any-trusted; to public-ip-address-of-youTube

Above service would ensure any traffic going out from any internal machine would not be restricted. The reason I say this is difficult is because to find all the IP address of the youTube website and mirrors would be a tedious task, on top of that the IP address/mirrors keep changing over time.
You can do nslookup from command prompt to know the current website/mirror IP addresses.

You would need to keep updating the service with all new IP addresses and delete the old ones as and when the changes are made.

Please implement and update if you need more details.

Thank you.
