As always I am not sure whether this is new, but a search for youtube didn't show up anything relevant; Either way, youtube is now transcribing videos (check out the cc menu, there is a new link at the top), for some people it works perfectly, although for most it totally messes up (e.g.

+ Show video

). Either way, this might soon mean youtube search is going to get a huge overhaul, which might turn out to be quite interesting. Also advertisements will get a whole lot better (theoretically), although this must cost a fortune in server power.

PS. Normally the youtube url parsing functionality is great here... sometimes I seriously hate it and would love to see ubb or even html. E.g. in this case I wouldn't even have linked the video.
