I'm afraid this is not cookie-dependent.

Does this work with other languages?
PS: this doesn't work for me, neither on Firefox nor on IE.

I say that's the way to go, keep those adds further down:)

Google property YouTube gets information like video length and stars, the other video services don't. I think this isn't the best for the user. It might be better to treat all results of one type the same, and to make sure to only deliver the crucial information. Stuff like file size (shown for every web result) and also the stars seem to be not super necessary...?

I don't think that's true.

That's why Google should add previews for all video sites that allow embedding.

Good point, though I was referring to Google web results and they don't add stars next to the Crackle.com video when I try it:

google.com/search?hl=en&q= ...

(... even when, based on your link, Google actually *does* have the rating information.)
