I will tell you step by step as how to do this, please follow the steps and you are good to go.

1. set the path of your chrome/ firefox driver you are going to use.

System.setProperty("webdriver.chrome.driver","C:\\Your\\Path\\chromedriver.exe");
WebDriver driver = new ChromeDriver();

2. Open the youtube webpage 

driver.get("https://www.youtube.com");

3. Get the id for the search box and type the keyword.

driver.findElement(By.id("search")).sendKeys("Happiness");

4. Click on the search key.

driver.findElement(By.id("search-icon-legacy")).click();

Hope this helps!

not working,navigating till opening youtube
Are you getting any error in the process?
That is because there many be more than one id with name "search". i too faced similar prob.

Try this, it is working.

driver.findElement(By.name("search_query")).sendKeys("Selenium");

driver.findElement(By.id("search-icon-legacy")).click();
