An SEO asked if links on YouTube videos will help with your Google SEO. Then someone said that it would help get your content indexed faster. Both are false and myths because YouTube links have Nofollow attributes on them, so Google does not count them.
John Mueller from Google even replied that links on YouTube video pages do not help get your content indexed faster.

So no, links on YouTube videos will really not help you with Google’s ranking algorithm or get your content indexed any faster. Also, embedding YouTube videos won’t help you rank better and Google’s John Mueller said in the past Google doesn’t use youtube links.
