A URL should be an active link.

Active URLs are not “evil”, they are the real thing. We want all of our URLs to be real “hyperlinks” to webpages, file photos, video streams, & documents across the Internet. It would be safe to say that "a webpage w/ inactive URLs is not an interactive webpage", & therefore not a real webpage.

Now, a URL that takes you to the “YouTube site” should not turn itself into an “embedded YouTube Video”. These are 2 different animals.

1) An active URL that takes you to the “YouTube Site” & displays a boxed video stream there (at the YouTube site) – this one you are converting to An “embedded YouTube URL” (see item-2 below), & it should not.

2) An active “embedded YouTube URL” embeds (or inserts) the “YouTube” video stream exactly at the place in the webpage where that “embedded URL” was placed & so it should replace itself w/ a (boxed) "windowed video stream control" right there. – this one you are processing Ok (for both YouTube & Google Videos).

Susie, I think that if we get these last few things just right we are going to be as compatible as we can possibly expect w/ the previous CC content.
