Does embedding YouTube use up my server bandwidth? [RESOLVED]

Hi,

I am running a video sharing web portal that allows users to embed YouTube/Google Video clips in their personal profile pages. Will these embedded videos take up any additional traffic bandwidth on MY web server? I would think not, but I'm perplexed as to why I'm still exceeding my allowable bandwidth every month.

Thanks in advance for the advice.

The keyword is embedded. The only bandwidth an embedded video would use is the HTML code used to embed them. The static jpg image and the video bandwidth are provided by the video sharing site. If you're exceeding your limits, it's not because of embedded videos. :)
