    I really hope some of the major deals Google/YT have signed mean at least some of the ebst clips stay up - its great for watching indvidual scenes from a movie for example.

    All the things that I want to watch on youtube are gradually disappearing. I hope some clips will not be taken off. Maybe I'll have to find an alternative site like youTube. Any suggestions?

    The media and legal world will always try prevent sites such as YouTube ever staying alive, shame but i'm sure the internet will start finding new ways to host the viewers needs :P

    You tube was a truly original bit of free, unregulated, largely uncensored media that's now going to be gradually made worse unfortunately.

    Edit: Person above me, some people may be epileptic. I really wouldnt have that in your sig

    If you want to blame someone, blame Google. They're the ones that monetised legal action for the content owners.

    Oh, and metacafe is crap, it's just a place people go because they think that YouTube is too mainstream.

    The best thing about YouTube was that so many videos were on there - it almost became the norm for people to upload their videos only to youtube.

    The same will happen as with Napster if YouTube really does crack - other places will open up but none of them will have the sheer content that the original had.
