Should Blog Posts With Embedded Youtube Videos Have Different Content So They’re Not Considered Duplicates?

In episode 127 of our weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked whether blog posts with embedded YouTube videos should have different content to avoid duplicate content issues.

The exact question was:

I am syndicating content from both the brand’s website and Youtube Channels.
How much would be the minimum to change the blog post from just plain embedding the Youtube video? So would it be enough to add X amount of words extra next to a video – like transcribing or just posting the same content in a blog format? Or should the blog post have different content in order to not be a duplicate?
