The best I can guess is that because Kinja won't thumbnail a video player which isn't Youtube or Vimeo, instead of taking a screen cap or using a logo, Neetzan has been putting a Youtube first on his recent Conan posts. It's the only explanation I can come up with, as to why he won't just use the TBS players. Gawker isn't making any money from the videos either way and I'm sure Time-Warner would rather not share ad revenues with Google, if it were up to them.

Does anyone have another explanation?
