&feature=g-like is generated when you visit your own liked video feed.

Visit YouTube, sign in and then go to the home page clicking the logo of YouTube where it shows you your social feed. There, click the like button beside your profile picture, as highlighted below:

Hover over or copy the URL of any of those videos YouTube says you liked and you'll see &feature=g-like appended to them.
