revised What is the best strategy for playing a video embedded on a webpage to provide the optimal user experience?
Found an example of a website that autoplays videos so I have added it to the question.

comment How do you distribute multiple surveys to a limited number of participants and get the right sample size?
Thanks for adding your input for a more complete answer to the question. Which of the services have you used? And which ones do you think is more robust?

comment Visualizing version-controlled hierarchical data
This is a very tough question, but is it not possible to adapt the tree rings metaphor to your problem here in some way?

comment How to validate reviews?
@Lodewijk I guess I am making the point that the best way to validate a review is to get a real person to read it :p

comment How to get users' heads around multiple views on the same dataset
A common strategy is to have buttons at the top of the table that act as 'toggles' to switch between views. This is a common strategy used in applications like the File Explorer in Windows.

comment Breaking into UX from a very weird background?
Coming from a science background myself, I'd say that your greatest strength would be to use the skills and knowledge you have in research and supplement it with the IT side of things. There is a large degree of research and testing involved in UX design that you can definitely leverage. For more advice please try and look for other similar questions or reach out to us directly if you are not able to join a chatroom discussion.

comment What are the metrics for measuring security and cognitive load as attributes of usability?
There are many aspects of security, both from the application and the user's perspective (e.g. password strength). Can you please provide more details about what you are looking for? In general an increase in security means a greater complexity of the task, not necessarily the cognitive load, but they all have implications for usability.

comment Grouping participants in a card sort analysis?
I was thinking that sometimes you won't necessarily know your users because it is a new concept or application, and even though you have some assumptions it might not unnecessarily be based on good information so you need to be more open about what the groups might be as well. So sometimes doing post sort analysis might add another valuable insight into the data compared to pre sort grouping.

comment Do mobile and touch gestures impact bidirectional screen convention? Any UX research?
It would be nice to see some screen shots of Arabic or Hebrew applications just to get an idea of what they look like on a page. I am sure many of us have no previous experience and it would be a good discussion to have.

comment Which part(s) of the overall user experience is best represented by the NPS?
Another way to look at the question might be why would someone not recommend a product/service to someone else, and I would say that if it is not reliable, useful or usable then it is highly unlikely that someone would recommend it to other people, since it would decrease their reputation as a credible source of information or advice.

Good point about the data availability and also interruption to what you are doing whether it is at home or work.

Thanks for the correction. I have changed the question to remove the reference to YouTube.com.
