Sharing in case someone somehow sees it here first.
After some research, I discovered that YouTube offers a privacy-enhanced way of embedding videos. Instead of linking tohttps://dri.es/how-to-remove-youtube-tracking
youtube.com, link to
youtube-nocookie.com, and no data-collecting HTTP cookie will be sent. This is Google’s way of providing GDPR-compliant YouTube videos.
YouTube offers a tracking-free embed option. Be kind and use it.
