Note how the quality is vastly superior to Gootube's. That's the end of YouTube's hamfisted attempt to hijack network content.
Bent, where have you been? CBS and NBC and ABC have been giving away free online shows for a couple of years now. For example Wednesdays are busy for me, so many times I watch Lost on ABC's tv viewer. You can watch many shows like desperate houseives, CBS's CSI, Numb3rs, etc. What youtube's downfall will be are all the copyright issues, however the user-generated content will still be there.
The video quality is something to be concerned about. Myspace's video player is signficantly higher in quality for example. Youtube will have to improve their video quality if they want to stay competitive.
That's pretty neat. I especially like being able to clip a piece out of the video that you want to embed...

yeah, that's old news, and bad news: no one wants to have to browse separate sites to find that stuff -- assuming they know which site to search to find the shows they're hearing about. I've heard of "heros," but I couldn't tell you which network it's on. I doubt I'm alone in that: That was part of what made gootube so popular -- all the stolen TV you could want in one place.
Don't think you could embed from those sites, either. If I'm wrong about that, please embed below.
This is what it says, when I click on it: "Unfortunately this video is not currently available in your country or region. We apologize for the inconvenience."
So no serious competition for Youtube at this point...
