---- Embedding / Scraping Youtube videos and comments

Hi ya, indyank:
Don't risk anything on your main site.
Thanks for the re-affirmation.
But let me ask you, do you think it would be risky?
I would embed you tube videos (which I am pretty sure is ok - after all, they give out the code fore embedding the videos right on the youtube page).
I would NOT scrape / copy any of the comments or any of the text on the youtube page. I would instead write my own narrative of what is happening in the video. The accompanying text would be all original.
I know that a picture is supposed to be worth a thousand words, but because the videos are related to cultural activities that might not be familiar to English speakers, my text would try to provide context to what is happening in the video.
Does that sound like it might provide usefulness to visitors? Or does something like that sound more like Panda chow?
