Seems like a perfect match. Google is the best company they could've sold out to.

I really hope they don't fux it up (aka make it more like google video), and I really hope they have the balls to defend against all legal threats. Google is a much juiceier target for lawsuits, since they, unlike youtube, actually make money.

I do hope they make it more like Google Video, visually. Because YouTube sure got a beating from the ugly stick.

I was there when both youtube and google video were starting out. For a time you could find most videos in both sites. Then google video cracked down on copyright infringements and youtube's popularity took off. Later on it caught on with the video bloggers and myspace types. Now that google owns youtube, you can say goodbye to all the TV clips and fansubbed anime.

Youtube's interface is cluttered, but it functions to facilitate the multiple interlinking and cross-referencing tools.

Well, aren't you special. Next you'll tell me you had a gmail account more than a year ago.

Google will probably remove a few of the more popular videos, but over all, they're not gonna do shit. Like Google, of all companies, gives a fuck about copyright.

Ah, I hope they don't crap up YouTube. I watch a lot of copyright infringing movies and cartoons on there. It saves me from downloading it on my computer which takes a day or two.

> It saves me from downloading it

Not really. You're just downloading a low-quality copy instead.

>>7 I personally abhor movies/episodes on there 'cause of the crap quality.

I feel like I'm in a wasteland. A desert. I see the threads have shifted position, but it's only a mirage. The oasis I thought I saw was only "Top lel."

I continue to roam this barren place. The survivor's colony at DQN shuns people such as myself, the "other-boarders." The creatures I come across are few and far between, and I can not call them posters. You are one of the better ones. Not spam.

This hell was created by idealists such as this:

This may be my last entry, or just another of many. If there are any others using this site, hello. I hope this finds you before the servers are no longer online.

Are you ok?



>Google is the best company they could've sold out to.

Do you still agree?

Amazing. This is seriously the best post i've seen on here.

Google was still the best or only choice.

Unfortunately, Google chose to use Youtube to fight, and avoid really fighting, aggressive copyright enforcement.

The firewall is burning up.

Youtube was Poland, and as a buffer, it's disappearing.

Well its 16 years since this thread started and youtube is a fucking shithole.

The community together with the commercialism completly destroyed the whole platform. Not just that most of the content is literlly mass produced so it can generate literally hours woth of video material which can be forgeten in a few seconds after watching it,


every fucking video has to be "family friendly" and "monetizable" what are just some fucked up words for boring and commerciable.

But there is more,

the real problem is not youtube casually striking down generlly good content (content which doesent bring up the wish to paint your walls with your brain), or the retarded 12 year old logan paul watching and fortnite playing community.

The true cancer in the system is the brainfucked scum that calls itself "content creator". These mother fuckers are trying to tell you that a compilation of stream fails, fake pranks or some gameplay of a game literlly everyone plays right now with minldess commentary and a dead inside looking shadow of a human being in a small window at the top right corner is content. But all this wouldnt even be a problem, the problem is that everyone with more than 3 followers is acting like they have a "business" to lead and how the have to upload or their "community" wont watch them anymore.

What happened to people creating content for the sake of creating anything, what happened to people generally enjoying content creating. What happened to people which simply wanted to make others laugh, others smile or troll others or something.

working for free is for cucks.

youtube now marks some videos as 18+ rather than deleting them sometimes. But they still delete vids if they are too 18+. And the way they mark those is very random, like, what is 18+ about this video? And it requires you to provide your real id if you want to watch those, at least in some countries, which you shouldn't do, ever.

there are still not shit people on youtube, but they are kinda buried down, you need to know where to look.

videos are kinda expensive to store and transmit, we should go back to videogames and forums and such, those are more space efficient.
