YouTube “si” tracking parameter when sharing

Link to reddit thread. (Archive copy)

When you share a video from the YouTube app, or “share” icon. The link it provides is a unique tracker. So, YouTube knows everyone you share the video with. If you put that link into a desktop web browser, it will resolve to the actual public web address. That is the one I usually share, to avoid YouTube tracking. They just started that unique tracking ID stuff recently.
