How does Google categorises YouTube pages for the display network?

I think I understand the basic principles of a display network campaign for websites.

However, how I am not 100% clear of how that applies to YouTube, which is also a DN.


If my understanding is correct, google matches your campaign keywords against website keywords. However, how does Google categorises Youtube pages? Does it only use the keywords and category used by the YouTube page creator?
