Google supports and recommends using the schema.org on-page markup for videos. However it is not clear if this should also be done when embeddeding a YouTube video. Or really even a Vimeo video. Or is the schema.org only necessary when hosting the videos yourself?

Do you ask if Google might show a Rich Snippet for externally hosted videos, or do you want to know if it’s allowed according to Schema.org? – unor Feb 26 '14 at 1:01
