I Love FSVIDS
YouTube much less so, so I won't miss it.
And floskate, you'd think that someone would ask before they upload your videos, but I just had some rude twit upload 10 of Ski's films of Liberty without asking. No politeness anywhere.
But with the copyright crap going on over at YouTube, anyone that might be looking for infringement would go right there.
I'd rather not see my stuff on youtube.
Figure Skating Is A Dangerous Sport
I was at FSVIDS today and saw where my Johnny on Kathy Griffin Show was posted over there. I think I would feel OK about it if they would have asked to post it. Why I am not real upset is they did give me credit for doing it.

The quality may leave something to be desired at YouTube BUT I have found some stuff there that I don't think I could have seen any other way. There is some great old Motown clips there. Berry Gordy will probably be knocking on my door any minute with his hand out.

Suggestion, all of the posters of YouTube that have skating vids, let's ask then to join us at GS. FSvids and rinkside are cool too - thanks Doris for info on where the "goodies" are - but an outlet that I don't have to put up with sleaze, fighting between teen, requests to subscribe that are nothing more than fishing and the iditological way of voting they have would be a great thing to let go away.
Why do I think that YouTube will eventually go the way of Napster? It's essentially the same thing but with video files rather than audio files...better enjoy it while it lasts...
I expect that if youtube starts charging for access, they're also going to have to stop allowing posting of copyright material, especially since their servers host the videos. It's absolutely no surprise to me at all that they're being sued for allowing posting of copyright material -- why should the TV industry be any different than the music industry?
Not sure I understand what you say here. Do you think the necessary registration at fsvids is for phishing??? Be sure, it is not. And none of those sites are run by "teens" if you mean that.

Not even close to what I was saying. Not the first to misunderstand me but....

FSVids and RinkSide are great places, just not much "traffic" as of yet and this was a suggestion to continue getting good vids without having to deal with some of the drawbacks of YouTube.
you tube has its advantages. tv script writter and tie-in book writer Lee Goldberg mentioned this in his online blog:

New Hope for the Dead
TV Critic Chuck Barney reports that the flop WB sitcom pilot NOBODY'S WATCHING, which got a lot of hype and thousand of hits when it was "mysteriously" posted on YouTube, has received an order for six scripts from NBC. The network will produce some original "webisodes" while they ponder whether or not to order the series. You can expect to see a lot more busted pilots "mysteriously" showing up on YouTube now..."
so if it wasn't for You Tube, that particular sitcom wouldn't have been picked up. By using YT, a lot more tv shows have more chances surviving.
