There's a new option to enable delayed cookies when you embed a YouTube video.

<< Enabling delayed cookies means that the YouTube video player will not set any non-session cookies on the computer of a visitor (viewing the page on which the YouTube video is embedded). The YouTube video player may set non-session cookies on the visitor's computer once the visitor clicks on the YouTube video player. >>

google.com/support/youtube/bin ...

The option is pretty obscure to be displayed every time you generate the embedded code.

Is the purpose of this option so that you don't have to mention the YouTube cookies in your own site's privacy policy?

In any case, why would you ever want to specify non-delayed cookies if you have the option for delayed cookies?

I still don't understand how this can be helpful, if at all...

Maybe the option has something to do with:
