"It is strange that Youtube expects users will actually be interested in paying for videos when they can be download for free through the large number of online tools available for that purpose." While this is true, my mother doesn't know how to do that, so why should everyone else who isn't a computer nerd.

well youtube, i enjoyed you while it lasted. pretty soon they will have a paid membership for the site for people to view the videos......and if you dont get the membership people who just surf around and dont take youtube seriously will be forced to deal with crap ads.

I've sid it before. When you form a servece based on the fre sharing of videos from users then decides years later once your popular to regulat, advertise, and now charge for that same content your goign to watch your comoany circle the drain

the downloads would probably have a higher bitrate, and probably in a format other than flash

Every new video and a large percent of older ones have already been converted to mp4 formated video. Flash is only the player. Both the regular/high quality and HD versions are easily downloadable. I've got two seperate bookmarks that allow me to download either one.
