This section from Google's "Personalisation settings and cookies" describes how you can manage cookies within your browser and states how to disable them.

When you do that, YouTube will no longer function and allow any video playback. This is not really an intentional barrier, because it's actually triggered by some JS script which tries to write a cookie for the privacy policy and open an overlay for that over and over again.

So ironically the cookie banner requires cookies.

@sheogorath also aweesomne it only describes it for chrome. Or is that text browsers specific?

@rugk nope, I opened that page in Firefox, so they only describe it for Chrome.

But to be fair, if you go by market share (including its derivates) it's the only relevant browser these days :/
