Legality of embedding YouTube videos?

P: n/a
I've done loads of googling trying to find an answer to this
question....so advice, experience would be appreciated.

I downloaded a software application last week and among other things,
it churns out the code for emedding youtube videos into a web page,
using a freeware flv movie player and NOT the one youtube usually
supplies to webmasters.

It's a cool feature which I would really like to use, but I am
uncertain as to how legal doing this may be?

Does anyone know anything about this?

YouTube has certainly addressed this topic thoroughly on their website.

Of course, if someone uploaded something illegally to YouTube in the
first place, then it would be just as illegal for you to display it on
your site.
