    If your video is enbed it's not a backlink, but embeding videos is a strong signal for youtube ranikings

    Can you please show the web2.0 so we can better analyze whether it is a backlink?

    By definition, crawler will consider 'something' as backlink if its between <a> and </a> html tags. Otherwise, it's not consider backlinks.
    Nowadays social activity also has values more than just backlinks.

    It is called an embed and unfortunately it is not a backlink.

    When you create some javascript which leads to a target site, not using A ahref, it still used to show as a backlink when you searched link: on google.

    I think embedding a videos counts as a citation, though not as a link but as a signal that that video is related to whatever is on that page.

    It does not create a back link. But if you share some more information it would be helpful to guide you in a right and helpful way.

    No its doesn't count as backlink, but it is better than backlink value. As this way your video will get some ranking benefit according to youtube factor.

    It is an embedded video and counts as a citation but not as a backlink.
