    Hi,

    I'm working on a website and I'm thinking to search for relevant youtube movies to put them on my website pages.
    Is this illegally ?

    Thanks for all comments

    1) Google does provide the embed code to display the videos on your site.
    2) The embedded videos have ads, so the owner is getting paid for it.
    3) If the owner doesn't want to have his videos embedded into 3rd-party site, he will forbid it.

    So, did I answer to your question? :)

    What WOULD be illegal is if you used a plugin to download the video from youtube, then you uploaded it directly to your server. But yes, if you are using embed codes, you are 100% good.

    Yeah embedding youtubes vids is legit. Do youtube have films that are worth watching? Other than the ones you have to pay for.

    They do have some decent movies uploaded on youtube if you know how to look for them. But they are usually from a few years back.

    Youtube let's you embed the videos so you're not breaking any TOS or laws. Just don't download the videos and upload them to your site. Or pretent to be the creator of the videos.

    Yes I agree with this point! We can use YT embed code to display the videos on any websites.
