Clarify something would you?

I thought that embedding video was a very bad thing and a major security issue, has that changed or is it just an acceptance of what some people want?

I am still of the mind that I prefer to create image links to videos, wherever they are hosted, or in some cases saving the videos to my own server but still using image links to them, most people don't even realize it, and I have had several people ask how I get around the popup blockers.

I may be wrong but I think it's safe due to the fact that it need to be put inbetween BBCode tags and you can use regex to control what is input.

Anything put in between the youtube tags is converted to embedded youtube code therefore as far as I am aware there is no easy (if at all) way to exploit this
