YouTube embeds acting up again

Here we go again. The last time (a while ago) I switched to the WP platform, I experimented with embedding/linking to YouTube video. YT being its own platform/service and videos come and go, I got irritated with video linking that went down because videos got taken offline. I told myself if I see it on YT and decide I want to put on my WP site, I should capture the video and host it myself so nobody makes it disappear on me.

Fast forward to this current move to WP and thinking that shit doesn’t happen (very often) anymore, so I again choose the ease and convenience of embedding YT videos. Fuck me, it still happens in fair regularity. So… when time permits time to rewind that shit, track down what YT linked stuff here is dying, and capture and self-host where I can.
