Video sharing is one of the best breakthrough on the internet. Now it is more possible to compress large videos to smaller sizes to allow smoother playbacks on websites. Youtube has been one of the best video sharing community which has more video archives. If you are a fan of youtube, why do you like visiting their site? Do you also have a channel where friends can view your latest videos? Do you enjoy showing your hidden talents on the internet? Who knows you could be discovered someday!

What makes me like Youtube is that you can view videos without paying any money. Plus, you can view them immediately, not having to download it. Their loading time is also very fast, so there wont be a lot of waiting to do while the buffer loads. Basically everything is on Youtube, so whenever I want to see Music Videos or other things, I would just go on Youtube and spend hours on it. P.S. Whenever my camera or Hypercam 2 records things, they are always very very big. Do you guys know how to compress it or make it smaller. They are really really really big.

Hi Bupler! You can try the video recording settings for Hypercam and choose output file formats like wmv or mpeg. But for the previous files you have captured, you can try using Windows Movie Maker or other video conversion softwares to compress the video to smaller sizes, as what I mentioned, you can try output formats like WMV or Mpeg. Another good youtube capture is Orbit downloader. Hope it helps :-)

I see, so wmv and mpeg are smaller. But, I have another question. Where can you change it in HyperCam 2? I don't see the option.

Sorry I think Hypercam only records AVI file formats. That leaves you to select the best avi codec available on your PC. AVI files are really large in size and I don't recommend Hypercam for capturing youtube vids. Try downloading Orbit Downloader for free from its official website. It has this feature that adds a download icon on the youtube video you are watching where you can download it directly to your PC. Hypercam only captures anything that is moving on your desktop while Orbit downloads the original flv file on youtube which is smaller compared to avi.

You can also find many rare music on youtube that you can't find at imeem. Of course it's embedded on video but the sound quality is still great.

The best thing i like most on Youtube is the Tutorial thing they have there. I learn a lot of great things from styling, makeup, some Adobe Photoshop tutorials and cooking of course. I also like Youtube on hard to find documentaries that is readily available there. I am keen on every documentaries posted there and i appreciate people who upload this too. But the best part is i can also download them. I don't have much video posted on my own account, maybe if we buy a new handy cam, i will be able also to share my videos to my friends there. Happy Mylotting!

i agree that we owe a lot to those people who took time to upload and share their videos for free. i also learned many tutorials on youtube especially techniques on Photoshop and computer troubleshooting.

I like the fact that I can make a video and upload it for the world to see. It is a great way for my family in Australia to keep up with me, and vice versa. I also like viewing some of the videos on YouTube that interest me. The only drawback is that we can not make money with our videos unless we pay YouTube. I think it should be the other way around. I think we should be able to charge viewers to watch and respond to our videos, then perhaps YouTube could take a small percentage from that. For instance, if we all could have the option of charging YouTubers one or two dollars for viewing our videos, and ten cents to make a comment, YouTube could skim a certain percentage off our total monthly earnings for profit. This way, both parties make money, and I believe charging people a small fee to leave a comment will discourage the rude, hateful, and unwarranted comments that some people leave on videos.

I agree with you there that videos uploaded by owners on youtube should have some earnings because we are contributing to youtube's traffic and site visits. Youtube owes its popularity to the video owners. I think in Metacafe.com, they have this producer's award system where you can earn money from your original videos.

I think the best part of you tube 8is that it`s totally free and plus there is no such restrictions as which kind of videos will be uploaded and everyone can show case the own thing. It gives a platform for many upcoming talents who can showcase their work to the whole world......

I mainly use Youtube now to watch cutscenes from video games, usually ones that I have, because I'm too lazy to go and actually play the game haha. But otherwise I don't go on Youtube much, sometimes I go on it to watch TV shows or anime, but that's about it. My sister uses it a lot to watch movies and TV shows or music videos, and my boyfriend watches it for funny clips. I think that the people who share the videos or actually make the videos themselves are very generous to take the time and make them and upload them.

Yeah, I am a big fan of various things on YouTube, such as the comedy videos that some people have made and uploaded,also things such as people's music videos they have done-maybe a version of a famous pop song, maybe a song take-off-there is some real talent on YouTube!

Yup, you are right. youtube is the first video sharing site that I know. I like to visit youtube because I can get record of many TV shows that I was not able to watch in TV. Also, I like to find the old TV program that yet still interesting to be watched. I have never shared my hidden talent in internet because I am shy :P.
