Comments on: Is Google’s message on YouTube starting to get through? http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2009/08/20/is-googles-message-on-youtube-starting-to-get-through/ Where media and technology meet Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:48:25 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: drewbie http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2009/08/20/is-googles-message-on-youtube-starting-to-get-through/#comment-363361 Tue, 25 Aug 2009 17:04:26 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/?p=18787#comment-363361 If it were up to me, I’d set a limit of how many videos could be posted for free per month and/or limit the number of views a free account video can have per month. Then I’d offer a premium account that has unlimited uploads.

That being said however google stores (time to guess) around 1 petabyte of videos (for those of us not mathematically/technically inclined that is 1024 terabytes which is 1,048,576 gigabytes), now anyalysts in 2006 assumed that google had around 100,000 servers and used 20 terabytes of bandwidth per day ,for comparison that is the same as streaming the entire literary collection of the library of congress. Streaming 20 terabytes costs alot of money…..as mike moran says “Given the cost of servers, storage, and bandwidth for streaming so much video over the Web, it’s certainly true that it costs them a bundle–far more than they ever expected.”sourceshttp://www.searchengine guide.com/mike-moran/googles-youtube-mon ey-pit.phphttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L ibrary_of_Congress

That being said youtube rally should find some way of making money because as its popularity increases so does the bandwidth consumption and the load on the server. and if google believes that youtube has ceased to be worth its while im sure that they could find it in their hearts to drop youtube! (resulting in a very many broken links =P)

IMO, if YouTube had a fee to create an account, then LESS people would join. You would think that the fee would help them make money, but YouTube is so popular because it is free. Less people would join if there was a charge for applying, and it would make the fee pointless.

If Youtube was provided to internet users as a free service in the first place, then it should remain that way. If it changes, the outcome will be bad.

Then allow you to watch old movies like Frankenstein (1931) for free while advertising similar movies or remakes such as Frankenstein (1994)or The Bride (1985) and charge $1.00 if they choose to view other content.My idea, no one elses. For more information, contact me Google and Redbox.

Charging? charging? Charging?! one day the internet won’t be free….and I’m going to go buy farmland.
