Hi Tim,

Unfortunately the nocookie domain is rather misleading and not true cookieless and therefore also not GDPR compliant if you consider the regular YouTube not to be compliant. For example, https://cybot.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/614733-iframe-cookie-consent-with-youtube-example

Relevant quote:

Please note that YouTube offers you to serve videos from the alternative domain http://www.youtube-nocookie.com which is not setting http cookies. Instead the alternative domain is setting persistent “super cookies” in the browsers HTML Locale Storage which also requires consent.

This is why the nocookie domain is not used in the theme.
