Is it safe to delete _oembed_* from the post_meta table (2 posts)

    I've got Hundreds of thousands of these in my post_meta table (meta_key column):

    _oembed_*

    Can I safely delete these or will it screw up all of my pics and youtube videos?

    I'd like to reclaim the 32M or so of space they're taking up.

    Thanks in advance,
    alan

    So there's an old plugin called:

    Better YouTube Embeds

    and the first thing it does is to clear the oembed cache from Post_Meta. :-)
