Last week I had an interesting discussion with a reader about video hosting. The reader was complaining that on many posts I embed YouTube videos (like this post) when you do that when the video ends it displays a series of thumbnails that if clicked link to other videos on your YouTube home page. I'd never even noticed this YouTube feature that started in September of last year. Has anyone else noticed this feature or find it objectionable?
The reason I use YouTube videos here on PFRE so much is:
Of course, it's important to understand that if you want your video to be totally unbranded with no possibility of advertising of any kind you need to use video hosting like iPlayerHD.com or the paid version of Vimeo. You may even find it beneficial to load your video on many hosting platforms to get the benefits of each service.
