Can I use a video that doesn't have a transcript and/or closed captioning but has an embedded YouTube link?

Yes, provided the embedded YouTube video has the closed captioning and transcript. In order to meet accessibility requirements, all videos need both.

If you just need the video (and not the other content on the page), use the YouTube URL. If you want the student to read the content on the page AND watch the video, you should make a note in the Blackboard instructions that the CC and transcript are available by clicking on the YouTube logo on the embedded video.
