Embed YouTube video via a cookieless domain

  Previous article Next article  

Since the EU Cookie Law and the new General Data Protection Regulation law the use of (tracking) cookies is controversial. You need a cookie consent feature when embedding YouTube videos at your website to comply with these laws...

I was looking for a way to embed YouTube videos without asking for consent to set cookies. Thought of, and created, very complex cookieless (sub)domains, iframes in pop-ups, etc... But the solution is *very* simple.............. TOO [beeeep] SIMPLE!!!

  How to use

The solution is add "-nocookie" to the domain name!! youtube-nocookie.com is a domain that won't set cookies when you watch videos...

The usual method
