Comment (by cypherpunks):

 Thanks Arthur for bringing this important usability issue to note!

 For me, I always use the NoScript icon >> "Blocked Objects" >>
 "Temporarily allow *@https://www.youtube.com". This requires only 1 click
 and enables both audio+video (whereas with click-to-play one has to
 individually allow video and audio).

 However for non-technical persons this isn't obvious at first sight.
 Fixing this will involve having to change NoScript's UX so that a
 "Temporarily allow videos and audio from www.youtube.com" shows up that
 the user can easily understand and toggle to meet his needs.
