YouTube now has new IFRAME embeds: Code: <iframe type="text/html" width="640" height="385" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/VIDEO_ID" frameborder="0"> </iframe> I'm not sure what disadvantages they might have, but the main advantage is that some videos are viewable without Flash. It would please Flash haters like me, and probably some Apple/iPad lovers too. It also runs smoother without Flash, and Chrome/Firefox 4 users can take advantage of it. P.S. What happened with the https server?
