YouTube’s policy for inappropriate content and the embed function
Recently I noticed something in the way YouTube manages the videos flagged as inappropriate by some users. You know such videos you want to watch but you must be logged in. This way you accept and confirm you are older than 18 years. On my facebook profile I had a post with such a video – it is embed of the video as you know. And guess what – everyone can play it. It doesn’t matter it you are logged in or not. Here is the example:
The YouTube video – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bJvIWGMe61E
Try this html code for the embed:
<object width="480" height="385"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/bJvIWGMe61E?fs=1&hl=en_US"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/bJvIWGMe61E?fs=1&hl=en_US" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="480" height="385"></embed></object>
And what I am thinking is : Is this a bug or feature ?
