    Yes you can.

    If you put the link by itself in the description box, or if you put the link first in the description box.

    What I mean is; When I add that embed code to a page, I wanted a clickable link to appear right over the top of the video or eight at the bottom.

    Does this break YT TOS ? Would they ban your video for this ? Or is this for only embedded videos ?

    edit: Nevermind. sorry, got it....

    If the linkedtube doesnt do it for you, I had a lot of users clicking out of my video site and I placed a div over the vid to make it unclickable except for the playbar. Then added another div at top over the link so when someone trys to click the YT link it launches my random ad page.. Works good and tested in MSIE, FF and Chrome. As a noobie ppc, cpm, cpv, cwtf ? I can't get anything in my niche to pay for clicks / views.

    Ive recently updated my WProbot YT module with the code.. I was going to post it all here, but didn't think there would be much interest in it..
    Anyway PM me I'll give ya a demo link, see if it is what your looking for..
