    What does embed mean?

    What does embedding mean? What takes place when I embed. For instance, on You Tube, if I embed a video, what happens?

    What is embedding? Well, it means that a web page at, say, example.com can include a bit of code that says, "Add this object from YouTube". Although most of the web page is from example.com, the video is actually still at YouTube. The video stays intact, nothing is actually copied or transferred to example.com, and any hits are still counted towards your total.
