I don't know about a distribution to use, but I'd image they all might have trouble buffering YouTube videos, disconnecting from wifi, suspending the laptop, and then still being able to play them later.
I suggest you use your favorite distro and a program called youtube-dl:
It's in ubuntu and debian repos, but I believe there's always a little arms race going on with YouTube, so that version doesn't always work. Get the latest from github instead.
You can use this to download YouTube videos and later watch them with a video playing program like VLC.
