What is different about a youtube url and some other domain url?
If a web browser can handle youtube url's as well as other sites then why should
not ffmpeg?
Your question does not make any sense to me...

Do you know for a fact that it does not?

If so that would have been the reasonable comment, i.e. "unfortunately ffmpeg
does not support youtube url's"
