Maybe not the solution you expected, but IMHO a solution for this

Use the free (as in free speech) web frontend to YouTube at — the URL paths are the same as with YouTube (e.g. for the URL above or for the first video on this
page), but it's _way_ more accessible, has autoplay deactivated by
default, etc.
