I doubt YouTube would allow that. Such video (even with UI provided by  
browser) lacks features that YouTube probably would require: branding and  
link to their website.

I think support for XSPF might be helpful in solving that problem. XSPF  
has <image> element which could be used as stand-in or overlay image and  
<info> elements for link to YouTube and video's page.
