All in the thread title, really. Would it be feasible to implement a kind of toggle switch to allow or disallow Youtube links to embed? If toggled off you'd get the link to the video but not the screen already in the post.
Reason I mention it is that video-intensive threads like the listening one can really slow the browser right down to a crawl and make the mouse go crazy. Would be good to just have the links and choose if I want to expand them. And this computer is not old so I imagine this might be a welcome respite for other forumites.
