Youtube embeds with timestamps cause requests and flickering

Having an embed inside a post really hurts the authoring experience

For example:

Every keystroke causes a pile of requests to youtube

The flashing is super annoying

This to me feels like a regression, we used to have a “preview” flavor image, that did not exhibit this crazy behavior.

The flashing a DoS to youtube needs to die.
