Can Youtube ban your site from embedding videos?

    Like the title says, I'm wondering just that

    Is not necessarily videos that I uploaded to YT, simple that I'm embedding on my site

    Can YT just keep videos from being embedded on my site? I'm not talking about the "author made this video viewable only on youtube" error but any video giving an error like "YT doesn't allows embedding on this site"

    Are there any cases of this happening before?

    Never heard of YouTube blacklisting a site before, maybe that's what it is? YouTube blacklisted the site?

    is "YT doesn't allows embedding on this site" the exact error your seeing?

    I can't say I've ever heard of such an error. I wouldn't count the idea out as Google is unpredictable. But I don't recall them making it possible to block a video from being embedded on a certain site.

    If the videos on YouTube have embedding enabled, then its good to embed them in your website.Otherwise you'l get errors like "YT doesn't allows embedding on this site" .

    If you want to remove the attached youtube video on your website. You need to remove from your hosting. Deleting a youtube video on a google account, will make a video error, so it can not be opened on your website.

    What exactly are you trying to get around / what are you afraid of? To my knowledge YouTube doesn't allow users to blacklist sites, so you should be good with whatever you're doing...

    Hey guys sorry for the delay, been busy lately

    I'm building a sort of video aggregator and was afraid that YT could do a sort of site-wide ban which would essentially kill me

    Glad to know that can't happen (well at least hasnt happened yet)
