Testing

This is apropos of nothing in particular. It has just been a while since I tried to post an embedded YouTube video. Once upon a time these were auto-playing in some browsers; a source of some irritation. I would quite like to posting links this way, however, so would be grateful for feedback on mileage.

In return: Tetris.

Works just fine, and didn't auto-play for me. I'm using Firefox 3.0.4, btw.

Works fine for me in both Firefox 3 and Opera 9.5.

It's all in the URL:
http://www.youtube.com/v/GkDBlEvfbgg&hl=en&fs=1

See the "&hl=en&fs=1" part? to get a vid to autoplay add &autoplay=1 to the end of the url, remove it to not have the vid auto play.
