    There's a section about advertising in the rules:
    Da Rulez

    You may link your youtube channel in your signature yes or on your profile.

    I dont think it counts as advertising if someone has specifically asked you for the link. Advertising would be more without prompt, you just randomly dumped a link somewhere without any context.

    What if I have made a homebrew game and I wanted for anyone here to download it?
    Is still infringing the warez and self promotion rules?

    I'm not a mod and don't have a full handbook of rule depth, but I'd imagine there's some reasonable lenience. If you're posting your own video with a purpose outside of just "I made a video watch it!!" I'd personally say it's fine. Like "I made this game, check out some gameplay I recorded, download is below" seems fine.

    Trying to promote your channel in order to gain viewers is seen as advertising.
    Showcasing a homebrew game isn't, iirc, we've had several front page posts that included youtube links towards someone's video showcasing things.
