No, you cannot have a Youtube video in your signature. It'd be a pain for people to have to load the video player every time that person posted, especially if that person posts often in a single thread and/or you have a slow connection.

oh okay but then why is there a youtube video button?

The signature editing interface uses the same interface as the "Go Advanced" editing function just for convenience, I guess.

That's correct. You can put them in your posts, on your profile, in visitor messages, and in blog posts and things like that. Putting them in a signature is mainly for those with dial up. It'll take forever for them to load the page compared to if you don't have a YouTube video in your signature.
Also, they're kind of big size-wise, so not allowing them in signatures just stops so much possible trouble over them.
