    If you had clicked on the YouTube video (eg. to start the video playing) then the Flash probably has focus and hitting Ctrl+T will be expected not to work.

    Click somewhere else on the webpage to give focus back to the browser, and then try hitting Ctrl+T.

    FYI, this is the same problem for all the major browsers, including Safari, Opera, Firefox, and IE, not just Chrome. The Chrome bug report to track this is:
