I have seen no adverse effect in case where I have someone else's video embedded.
However, the video makes only a very small percentage of the page (e.g. pages with someone's else video may have 500-1000 words), and further, there are only a few such pages on the site (less than 1%). We also have few pages with our own videos embedded.
But my answer above may not tell you much. For example I do not know what would happen in the following cases:
- if you go and embed other people's videos on lots of pages of the site
- the page on which you embed the video has not much else on it (i.e. not much content beyond the video)
- or even worse, the both (lots of other people's videos that go to thin content pages)
