To enable the new Labs features, just click on the green labs icon, enable the previews you want to start seeing in your Gmail, then click save.
Once YouTube previews are enabled, you can watch videos from inside your email whenever a YouTube URL is shared with you. With Flickr and Picasa previews, photos will appear within emails.
