Created attachment 688228 [details] A very bad mockup of how I'd invisage it looking. User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:17.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/17.0 Build ID: 20121128204232 Steps to reproduce: Set click_to_play to true and browse to any page with an embedded YouTube video which will now be showing a plceholder. Say you want to know where the embedded media is hosted before clicking to play. (EG, "I trust YouTube's embedded flash player, but not some unknown website.") Actual results: I'd have to right click and dig deep into the source to find where the flash content is hosted, which is tedious and requires technical knowledge. Expected results: If the click-to-play placeholder included the domain, I'd be able to instantly say "Yes, I trust YouTube/Vimeo/etc, play the video." or "I don't know about dodgyvideos.example, so I won't click to play this one."
I understand the desire to see this information, but I think that most users will not understand or be able to use that information. So I'm going to mark this request WONTFIX in terms of core Firefox. I welcome the possibility that a Firefox extension could make this information available.
