Now we’re planning a gradual expansion of HTTPS across other aspects of the site. The first place you may see HTTPS YouTube URLs is in our various embed codes, all of which currently support HTTPS in addition to the standard HTTP. Anyone can try HTTPS with YouTube embeds today—simply change the protocol portion of the URL from http to https.

I really need to get out more often. I haven't seen much discussion on this and I would think this is big news for quite a few of us?

LOL at encrypting countless terrabytes of data to avoid little cross-site conflict warning dialogs.

Any snooper can see the connection and therefore what video is playing, how is intercepting the data of any possible use? What is the point of encrypting it...
