    Default YouTube Embed: "Scripts/ActiveX Controls"

    Recently, I've taken to messing around with HTML, drawing from the code I used in an old four-page "website" I made for an online Web Design class some time ago. I've always wanted to make my own website one of these days, and I figured I might as well get some practice in.

    One step of this practice involves embedding a YouTube video onto an HTML file. But by just kinda throwing the embed code in there without altering it much (just changed the iframe's dimensions to 960x540, that's it), whenever I open the page on Internet Explorer, the browser always automatically stops the video from loading, claiming the following:

    It's not completely crippling, but it's certainly annoying, having to press the "unblock" button and refresh the page every time I open it to see the changes I make to it. I also get the feeling that it's avoidable, since embeds on the Forums never give me such a hassle. That's what I'd like to know. Is there a way I can embed a YouTube video without it trying to run those unfavorable scripts/ActiveX controls and getting blocked as a result?

    Thanks in advance.

    UPDATE: Found out it had something to do with me using an unposted HTML file rather than an actual website. That's definitely good to know.
