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.
