I've not done this in awhile, but YT probably works as the browser is HTML5 capable....

Brother GUI setup??? UMmmm.. hmmmmm...err.rr.... *I* have not seen that for Brothers for HP, yes HPLIP-GUI
sudo apt-get install hplip-gui
There still could be PROBLEMS some HP and others Brothers etc.. usea binary driver to make up the lack of the printer having the needed hardware. These binary drivers are not COMPILED for ARMHF ie for the PI's... HP was looking at fixing that for some... There was a bug on it on Launchpad I'd have to dig around for it... I don't know if they ever resolved it.. I know they were at least being receptive to providing ARMHF versions...
On Linux I stick to HP printers due to the simple fact you have a near 99.999% chance the will work...
See if you can find an HP or similar Brother printer in the CUPS list that will work or a generic PCL5 or PCL5 Color printer..
