YouTube Adds New Features to Embedded Video

Google/YouTube has launched an interesting new feature to its embedded video player. If you find a video on YouTube, and want to display it on your website, you can embed it there with a bit of code. So the video plays right on your site, even though YouTube is hosting it.

Now, this video on your site displays a nifty little scroll of related videos. This is a intriguing way for YouTube to control the content of your site, and expose more videos to your audience. I experienced this while surfing the web yesterday, but can’t seem to find the same feature very easily today. Not sure if it was just an experiment.
