You could...

... install the Intellitype software that came with the keyboard, or download it from Microsoft. Then, customize the functions of the keys you want to remap through that software. It allows you to create/assign/manage Macros, so you could then set the media playback buttons to specifically play/stop/pause Flash videos on Youtube.

Of course, if you'd like more Robust keymapping controls, you could skip the limited Microsoft software, and go with Autohotkey instead. People have had success remapping even their laptop Fn and Eject keys with this.
