YouTube.com – Express yourself for the World to see – SNL skit draws
Network’s attention to Website
March 21st, 2006
Possibly you have
found yourself without enough things to entertain yourself. A
website called YouTube allows anyone to share and watch home grown
videos on the internet.
started in February 2005 by pioneers of PayPal which is now owned by
eBay. The goal of YouTube is to make it easy for anyone to upload
and share video online. Competitors to this video market are Google
Video which also has ability for people to share as well as sell
their video clips online.
are user to email the video clips, as well as make their own
personal video network. Currently there are over 25 million videos
being downloaded on the internet every day. Sequoia Capital was the
major investor in this website.
It is a free
service for both the people that want to upload video as well as
those that want to watch video. At this time it is not clear where
the revenue will be generated for this website. There is a legal
fight for slowing down video transfer of degrading quality by
internet providers because of the cost to transfer data. Back on
December 17th, a Saturday Night Live skit was posted on YouTube. If
floated around until finally NBC asked to have it taken down.
NBC.com posted the “Lazy Sunday” skit to download for free on their
networks and movie producers may be concerned about copyright
infringement potential due to the openness of the ability to share
video. I somehow think that the quality isn’t going to be that
great compared to the original to really be that concerned. It also
can take a while to download a video clip. Television is
instantaneous and offers better quality.
YouTube is a
little easier to navigate than Google Video. However, Google Video
has more stuff that you would like to watch, some are free music
videos of popular artists. Google Video also is adding many
National Archive Films. YouTube will likely need to add pay for
video services in the near future in order to make a profit in the
future. It could be a fun way to share you home videos with family
and friends across the country.
