Have you heard of cases where they can execute by themselves.
eg. say straight after removing contents from SBIE?
Is it actually possible?

At the moment I am not viewing video/music files sandboxed; for safety should I? I download them Youtube.
Does Google scan uploaded videos and eliminate the malware? Is it safe to presume the downloads are
safe cause its from Youtube?

Not sure if it's possible. Up to you about how "safe" you want to be.
