In the past I had seen many users place questionable videos on their websites that were not legal to place there. The reasons are many but mostly were due to piracy and I wanted offer an alternative to breaking the law. We all l have seen Google videos and the plethora of choices that are amassed there but not all shows they list are legally there. There are certain cases where you should NOT embed a YouTube video. If the video you see is of some commercial TV show or movie, even if there is an EMBED code, it is not wise to embed it. While it is of course possible that the commercial TV or movie company put up the video themselves and want others to embed it, there is also a chance that someone other than the copyright owners has illegally uploaded the video. Embedding such videos puts your site (and you) at risk. You may have the most innocent of intentions, but if the copyright owner takes you to court, you'll end up spending money, wasting time, worrying unnecessarily, just to prove your innocence. It's simply not worth it.

Here is a safe alternative to those residing in the US and one that wont get a cease and desist order telling you to remove it because these are right from the film makers themselves...

Hulu is a website that offers commercial-supported streaming video of TV shows and movies from NBC, Fox, ABC and many other networks and studios. Hulu videos are currently offered only to users in the United States with licensing reasons cited.

Hulu is a joint venture of NBC Universal (GE), Fox Entertainment Group (News Corp) and ABC Inc. (The Walt Disney Company)

Hulu distributes video both on its own website and syndicates its hosting to other sites, and allows users (YOU) to embed Hulu clips on their websites. In addition to NBC, ABC and FOX programs and movies, Hulu carries shows from other networks such as Comedy Central, Current TV, PBS, USA Network, Bravo, Fuel TV, FX, Speed, Big Ten Network, Syfy, Style, Sundance, E!, G4, Versus, A&E, Oxygen and online comedy sources such as Onion News Network.

To embed a video or TV episode into your website:

1) Goto
2) Select from either “TV” or “Movie”
To embed a full length TV episode or movie select from “Popular episodes” for TV or “Popular featured films” for Movie.
3) Locate the desired episode or movie you would like to embed and click to watch.
4) Once the commercial is finished and the show begins to load click the “Embed” button in the upper left corner of the media player.
5) Copy the code provided and paste into an HTML widget in your site builder.

This is a legal and friendly way to add a movie to your personal or for profit website.

Happy site building and keep it legal my friends...
