    It shouldn't break the ToS unless it specifically states that the videos can't be scraped by a non-human entity, that would kinda make sense since YT publishes APIs specifically for this purpose..

    I am not sure about the yt tos but confident with the copyright infringement. Do NEVER dare to put adsense in it.

    I'm not sure about the use of a bot for scraping but I'd imagine it isn't against their ToS. As long as the videos are being embedded and not downloaded and played through an external video player then I doubt it'd be copyright infringement either.

    Yeah theres nothing wrong with embedding videos on websites. Youtube has ads embedded in the videos, so if you're still using their player, theres nothing to worry about.

    LOL on you guys! Embedding is for limited use. When you make a youtube clone of embeded videos. It's no more Safe! :-D I know guys, banned from adsense for this.
