So I guess...start uploading videos in the highest quality you can?

I guess it takes a firm belief in the invisible magician to properly sell a gun online. Who knew?-Shawna

Oh shit, I was gonna post this. It confirms some of my suspicions. Maybe this should be it's own topic.

I like the Amazing Atheist shout out @10:10. I was totally not expecting that.

Same. Wasn't expecting the TAA shout out either. Was like EEEE!

None of this surprises me either...

I've seen TAA featured before. he's got over 100k subs. youtube won't ignore that. I haven't seen craftnation though, and he does make quality videos and is fairly popular. Youtube is making some big mistakes by proposing all this shit. I doubt any other vloging site will ever get as big as youtube, but such animosity from frustrated users will encourage competition. I also doubt that google will ever realize the people they are marginalizing as they decrease the costs of maintaining youtube, but they are still going to lose revenue if they continue doing this for sure. Most people on youtube watch lots of over-hyped garbage but are still certain to come across a lot of enjoyable videos with less than 1000 views or whatever. That's what makes youtube so alluring and addictive. It's that search for something you had never even thought about. And you can only explore something that organic if you allow amateurs to make shitty quality videos.

Meh, you couldn't really expect that youtube would stay the same and not become commercialized. I fine with what ever youtube decides to do. Plus people will still use it because no matter what they do to it, it's still youtube, and they can throw that name around.

Because of my 200MB/day Satellite Internet "FAP", I was already very limited in the amount of YouTube content I could watch per day, if I put up with failure to loads, and refresh a time or two every couple of pages in order to just get it to work. I have always been of the opinion that the vid quality is too low regardless. So I think it is a good thing that they are increasing the quality, but maybe they went too far. What's more, even when I re-encoded my three short vids that I uploaded into a compressed format, at 320 X 240, it took almost an hour to upload and had to attempt several times before it worked (it worked 1st try when I installed and used Google gears though). So I cannot imagine uploading a vid at 1080p res over 3 minutes long. It would take a day or more!

So I am unaffected by the change, so long as they still offer the vids in lower res as well. But for those with gonjo Internet connections, more power to you.
