Rumors flew yesterday about today's YouTube announcement. Some thought it would be high-definition videos (long desired); others thought it would be a deal with Hulu (which would have been cool). The real announcement was an opening up of YouTube, turning it into a service that could power your own application, site, whatever, via new APIs.

We try really hard to make YouTube as open as possible. Anyone can
upload and view videos, which can be embedded anywhere and viewed on
all kinds of different devices. And, of course, anyone can participate
in our community by commenting on videos, rating them, and sharing them
with friends.

Nevertheless, we worried that we weren't open enough. So, we
pulled some all-nighters and added some powerful new ways to integrate
YouTube content and community into other websites, desktop
applications, video games, mobile devices, televisions, cameras, and
lots more.

Expect partners to inundate us with announcements.  In fact, TiVo has already announced integration of YouTube with its Series 3 units.
