"YouTube (owned by Google) does not let you watch videos anonymously. As such, watching YouTube videos here will be tracked by YouTube/Google."

And then it asks to watch the video "on Youtube" or Click "Here". As you proceed the question which arises that what does exactly mean by "Does not let you watch videos anonymously"?

So this warning is coming from the search engine DuckDuckGo, which means that the browser you are using needs to connect to YouTube even if you decide to watch the video "Here"(On the search engine itself).

Now you are using TOR, which hides your IP from both Youtube and DuckDuckGo. This warning is usually for the users who are not using the TOR. Youtube does not forbid TOR Users, you can watch the video anonymously.

Google and Youtube are still ty to track the TOR Users, like the way you interact with YouTube, patterns, and behaviors, or maybe you simply log in with a normal account, then, of course, Google tracks those activities as well.
