There are no plans to allow hotlinking to other sites since technically in the industry that is called bandwidth theft and is heavily frowned on.
in the past that was true but it's a whole new world out there and since everyone embeds ads in their video nowadays the opposite is actually true and places like Youtube WANT their videos 'hotlinked as you say' because it's how they make money - otherwise they would not so heavily promote their embed code. It is not frowned upon at all by youtube or the other large video sites - it's encouraged.
but - good luck with that. I'd figured I'd just check here before taking the time to switch to another product on my sites. I've always liked your products.
