    I have been warning my family and friends not to follow embeded redirects and links from Youtube for a while now. I don't like the way Youtube has allowed embedding links into the clips - It's just retarded. "See the better HD version here" and so on is just so tempting.

    Just today I was looking at music videos and one of the videos didn't actually play the clip in the title. Instead it had a link to the side saying the media rights were in breach so follow the link - to some personal website.

    Risky Risky

    Variations on a theme I've seen many ....Tube (fill in the gap) type sites popup pushing fake codecs, and have collected many samples. I also come across that one on youtube and should imagine both entice many a not so savvy a user into trouble.
