i never knew that yahoo had a video thing like youtube but if they have to pay popular people to join i think thats very bad advertising
I never knew they had a video service. Competition is normally a good thing but I don't think that is so in this case. I don't really have any complaints about youtube and I don't see how it can be improved. Everyone uses it and I like it being a 1-stop for everything, I wouldn't want to visit multiple video sites. Sorry Yahoo but I won't even be trying your service.
I knew yahoo had this for awhile but only watched a few vids here and their but haven't tried out the HD portion of it unless its already implemented...But competition is indeed a good thing it can drives companies much more steady paste to battle the flaws each has :x
I didn't know about the Yahoo video either. Honestly I think YouTube is too well established and widely known for Yahoo to actually make a viable push to be competitive with Youtube. I can't really see a lot of huge already established content creators switching over to something right off the bat. Lots of variables to consider then. Like how many of their subs will actually go to Yahoo when most likely most of their video viewing pleasure already comes from Youtube and obviously the add rev would be the biggest incentive for any Youtubers to make a switch. Just have to see what happens, but I don't see Yahoo taking over YouTube
This could definitely be a good, competition is always good for the consumer. I can only hope this and other sites like Blip and Vimeo get popular enough to where YouTube will actually listen and actually fix the issues the site has.
Yahoo used to have a video sharing site, called Yahoo Video. They eventually got rid of its video sharing capabilities, and eventually renamed it Yahoo Screen. I think Yahoo Video failed as a video sharing site because people would easily confuse it with their video search engine.
Although I think it would be a good move for Yahoo to create a video sharing site (other than Flickr which is a photo sharing site with video sharing capabilities), I think the plan of poaching YouTube stars could easily backfire. It could result in making room for new YouTube stars to rise up to take their place. Some YouTube stars might not want to forgo the larger audience for greater revenue.
Even if Yahoo successfully poached the so called YouTube celebrities and their audiences, the video views of so called Youtube celebrities probably would only make up a small percentage of Youtube video views.
Another thing to consider is that despite Youtube's popularity, there are hundreds of competing video sharing sites (see list of video sharing sites). Many video sharing sites aren't very popular but these ones are:
