To record YouTube videos on OBS, you can check out the following tutorial:

Step 1. Launch OBS Studio on your device. Next, right-click on the Source option and click Add.

Step 2. Then, choose the Display capture option to select the window or screen for playing YouTube videos. Also, for audio, you can click Audio Input/Output Capture to choose the source.

Step 3. After that, click Start Recording from the left bottom toolbar to begin your YouTube video recording. 

Following the above steps can help you complete the YouTube video recording task with OBS. However, the tutorial's interface is too complicated, so you might also feel confused. You can easily get lost at any step. So, in my experience, I think you'd better choose an easy-to-use OBS alternative to improve your recording experience. EaseUS RecExperts is such a tool that allows you to capture high-quality YouTube videos.
