Best practice to watching YouTube videos in Citrix sessions on IGEL OS?

Hi, we have a lot of UD2 (even some new UD2) in a Citrix Environment. More and more people want to watch youtube and other video content on their published server desktop. Is there a best practise to solve this problem? Browser Content Redirection is very slow on the UD2s, open the Youtube Stream in the citrix session puts a lot of cpu and network usage on the terminal server (no gpu acceleration).
