Looks like your browser is hitting a proxy on the way to youtube.com. It may be on purpose or not but that's the basic issue. Youtube does not use a certificate issued by VMWare and issued to VMWare. Do you have problems with other ssl sites? Try https://www.google.com - same error?

Update: Looks like you are running a web-server locally on port 90 (try telnet 80 and telnet 443 to see if you get responses). For whatever reason youtube.com is resolving to 127.0.0.1 which is an IP address reserved for referring to the local host. These are two separate things that you might want to understand the cause of. You should be aware that you are running a webserver locally - looks like it may have been setup automatically by VMWare but that the OS you are discussing is actually a guest OS (ie it is a VM) rather than a host OS (ie it runs VMs); if you are surprised that you are running a webserver locally than you may have security problems.
