 > Thanks Arthur for bringing this important usability issue to note!

 Agreed! I think that we should definitely work on making this one
 intuitive click and one reload.

 > For me, I always use the NoScript icon >> "Blocked Objects" >>
 "Temporarily allow *@https://www.youtube.com";. This requires only 1 click
 and enables both audio+video (whereas with click-to-play one has to
 individually allow video and audio).

 I didn't know that video and audio had to be enabled separately. :(

 > However for non-technical persons this isn't obvious at first sight.
 Fixing this will involve having to change NoScript's UX so that a
 "Temporarily allow videos and audio from www.youtube.com" shows up that
 the user can easily understand and toggle to meet his needs.

 This is a good idea. A "make things work for me" button on a page is what
 people want more than "only allow audio, only allow video." We (the tor
 browser team and the ux team) are thinking of better security toggles to
 give the user, and we'll definitely take this into consideration.
