Is embedded youtube video counted as my site's bw traffic or just google's?

Almighty LETers:

Suppose that I have a website hosting a large collection of embedded youtube videos, and a lot of dynamic pages with text and photos, and some self hosted videos.

If there are a lot of people viewing the embedded youtube videos, will the traffic add to my server's bw traffic? Will this slow down the viewers who only read news pages with text and photos?

Thanks in advance.

    So even I embed youtube videos on my site pages, my server's bw will not be ballooned?

    Nope but youtube will generate $$ from video ads.
    nothing is free!

    When you embed something, the resource is still served from the server to which the embed url points to.
