nit: You should be able to paste a URL in the YouTube search bar
You can paste a link but you end up on the search results page. The first video is the one you’re looking for. The following ones are often weird combination of “related” and “recommended”.
It seems to me that the users’ intention in this case is pretty clear. The user could safely be redirected to the video screen rather than the search results.
