The -c flag sorts by ctime and -t sort by mtime, if a new file is created both should return it at the top (head -1). Maybe try the following code, it grabs the newest file prior to download and then compares it with the current newest file until it changes. Once it detects the downloading file it sleeps for 30 seconds to let it download some and then begins playing.

cd /media/mmc1/Videos
FILE=`/bin/ls -1t |head -1`
youtube-dl-x --no-part -f 5 -o "%(stitle)s.%(ext)s" `xclip -out` &
sleep 5
while [ "$FILE" = "`/bin/ls -1t |head -1`" ]; do sleep 5 ; done
sleep 30
mplayer `/bin/ls -1t |head -1`
