    I noticed that YouTube videos when embedded are trowing validation errors caused by use of
    Code:
    &
    sign used in URL.

    I tried to use widget with same result. I also used several cleaner codes found on internet.

    Does anyone have a solution for this one? It would be highly appreciated.

    because wordpress uses XML for parsing etc. and "&" is an illegal character.

    Simple solution; write it as "&" and it should be fine.
