I'm guessing that currently there is no way to do this, but I'm going to ask anyway. I'm making my own Sega-themed build and I really want to add some of the cool documentary stuff on YouTube as a kind of "bonus features" thing.
I know Kodi can do this, but honestly it's too klunky for what I want. I want another option on the ribbon and then the videos to be listed and playable just like ROMs. I'm aiming for a seamless experience that avoids the "now you're in another application" feel of using Kodi.
Again, I assume this really isn't possible because I certainly haven't found anything like it yet, but it can't hurt to ask.

What final result are you looking to achieve?
You could create a place holder rom file and edit the gamelist.xml so the video pointed to one of the locally saved doc videos and use a skin with video support, that way you could just highlight the name the video would play right there.
That would be plan B. Not exactly what I want honestly. I want to have the videos listed, selectable and then play full-screen.
@TwoShedsWilson That's easy - just create a new system with Videos in the carousel, then associate
omxplayerwith the video system. Instead of running
runcommandto start an emulator, you'd just be running
omxplayer <ROMNAME>. See the docs on how to add a new system in Emulationstation here.
@mitu Thank you! I'll try it out tonight!

I hope this works for you @TwoShedsWilson I might see if I can work it into one of my builds for fun
