    Is this a good permalink structure to use for a youtube video blog
    with the new updates that google has & not get penalized for
    keyword stuffing.

    /%category%/%postname%/

    Why the .html at the end & no last / before it slash

    /%category%-%postname%.html

    /%category%/%postname%/

    mrsix is correct. The deeper you go with your url structure the harder it will be to rank. Google thinks a deeper url (example.com/category/keyword/somemorestuff/) is somewhat less important than shallower ones (example.com/post-name/). At least that has been my experience.

    Would just /%postname%/ be the best with google.
