The utility here is somewhat questionable. Chances are if someone has decided to embed a video elsewhere, they did so because they think it adds some value, and in many cases, will write something along with the embed to give it context. The styling is also rather bland, though going with something other than boring white text might make the text clash with the video. Nonetheless, if you’re viewing a YouTube video offsite, seeing this data can give you some idea as to whether or not you should bother to watch.

it would be cool if i could add my own content like my site's url; when i add it in imovie it blows up the file size and i have to compress it for less quality.

any thoughts?
