Hi all,

Slightly OT.

If I embed a youtube video on my site and someone watches it, does my
web host consider this part of the bandwidth usage in my monthly allowance?

I know your answer may be 'go and ask your web host' but just wondering
if anyone has any thoughts or experience on this?

Think about it, the video is not on my server, it's Youtube who is
sending it to the client.

As long as the video lagish flash thinggy is in reality located at youtube,
the only traffic counted is the stuff you put around it, as the other stuff is
sent from the other server and not from the server hosting your html.
