The browser might show you the URL for the above YouTube Video as:

YouTube Video URL

The text of the URL above in full is:

It turns out that there is a hack that allows you to bypass the login and view the video, if you know how to manipulate the URL.

If you notice the URL above, it contains pDOmwjgKBcI which represents the video ID.

The trick to watching the video without having to login is to take the video ID and construct the URL as follows:

http://www.youtube.com/v/pDOmwjgKBcI

Through URLParser.com it's easy to parse and edit the original URL for the video, especially with either the Bookmarklet or Firefox Add-On.
