YouTube Testing Related Videos in Embedded Player
Garrett Rogers has details of a new test by Google’s YouTube to display related videos in their embedded video player. Related video suggestions is not a new feature for YouTube, but the introduction to their embedded player is.
As Rogers suggests, this is a smart move by Google, as I would imagine a good percentage of YouTube’s videos are watched via someone’s site or blog. Adding the related video content is just a hop and a skip away from adding related video ads.
