If you are keen on targeting Youtube, you better target it manually as management placement or via AdWords for video, then you still can exclude the video-sharing pages category without any fears.

Hi Nicolas

I don´t think YouTube.com as a whole is classified in any specific way (accept maybe as "Website for video sharing" (that could have another name in english), but only specific pages on YouTube

I have the same question and got a solution, go to YouTube's Facebook page, there is a category shown "entertainment website" by their admins. Video sharing website is another most relevant category.
