It looks like YouTube has added "related videos" to embedded videos. This seems to be causing quite a bit of frustration. I personally think it's awful to have this activated by default.

You can disable the feature whenever you want. Whats wrong with that?

If you read through the comments on the YouTube blog, you'll find that many of the related videos aren't related. I guess when you get something free you can't really complain, but it would have seemed a better idea to make it an option instead of enabling it as the default.

I agree, but I guess its a way YouTube promotes their other videos.
