Our Review:

Since video sites such as YouTube don't offer much useful content beyond the actual video (that's right, I'm disparaging YouTube comments en masse), there's no point in going to YouTube to watch a video when you could embed it directly in the page you're looking at.

That's the idea behind Videoembed, a script that automatically embeds videos from sites like YouTube, Google Video, and Metacafe whenever a site links to a video without embedding it. Now instead of clicking through to YouTube, you can watch the video directly on the site that linked to it. This is a must for ease of access.

System requirements: Windows; Mac; Linux; plus browser Firefox, Flock, Chrome, Seamonkey, Songbird.
