Dan Stockton had some good things to say about YouTube usage: >>Don't discount the possibility of hosting videos on your own >>website just because YouTube is available yet neither discount >>the idea of hosting on YouTube just because you have your own >>website. Supplement the disadvantages of one with the advantages >>of the other. You needn't choose only one, do both. I agree with Dan. Use both - but use only where applicable. And by that I mean that you may want to think through the whole 'user experience' thing here. On one hand, I probably wouldn't want to answer inquiries from potential investors / venture capitalists by sending them a link to an 'about my company' video sitting on YouTube. There might be some situations where that would 'work' but I think there are a lot more where that would be seen as a negative. On the other hand, if I were a company like Blendtec then I certainly wouldn't mind putting a few of my "Will it blend?" videos up on YouTube to increase brand awareness. (Presuming, of course, that I could do so without reliquishing any ownership/repurposing rights that I may not wish to give up by uploading to YouTube.) I think you need to think through what it is you are trying to accomplish and then determine when and where YouTube might be a good fit for your needs. HTH, RonL.
