    Is it possible to embed the youtube rating function to my HTML-Only website like the videos? I want to include a rating function under my embedded youtube videos with a HTML-Only website at webs.com.

    I am about as far from a proper web developer as I can get and even further from anyone that ever messes around with the youtube API (other than forcing HTML5 embeds but that is a different matter) but https://developers.google.com/youtube/2.0/developers_guide_protocol_ratings could well be what you are after. Their examples are somewhat XML heavy but looks to be done with standard post functions. Unless this is part of some security if your host does not offer PHP or some equivalent I would advise jumping ship. Edit- did not see webs.com... alas I have a bit of disposable income these days (or can write it off as a business expense) so hosting is not a problem but there are some nice deals out there (I think my toy hosting allowed me to buy a three year block for less than a heavy night out).

    I can not help but think there is some potential for a nice bit of cross site scripting or at least info grab there but I will leave that for now.

    Thanks but I think that a free webs.com account doesn't support xml :(.

    Even if you are not wishing to spring for some hosting (do yourself a favour and get a domain at least) then looking at it I think would even take ISP hosting (although I guess you could always cname it if you get a domain or if you have a nice registrar a sort of frame based redirect) over webs. I have to ask though is there a reason you have not gone in for a blog of some form (many video channel people maintain one and with google starting to harmonise the services it has it is even better than ever)?

    Equally there is such a thing as html doctypes (including XHTML 1.0 Transitional) and should have nothing happening on the sever end* (the extensions that you might be restricted to are not really an issue). We are very much leaving my web development comfort zone though.

    *if their ad injection stuff does not work take it as yet another sign webs are not a good option.

    I know that webs.com isn't the best hoster but: I have a second domain: http://www.flashcards.info.ms (a german website). The domain is free and it cuts the ads. That means: I have a free hoster with a free domain without advertising. I think that that's not as bad as everyone says who knows webs.com. And I use youtube for video hosting, mediafire for files and imageshack for pictures. I often make offline backups because I won't loose files.
