Why YouTube is winning out over Google Video

May 17, 2006 | General | By: Mark VandeWettering

Recently Google Video decided to allow uploads directly from the web browser, and promised that they would expedite the approval of video (it took several days last time), but it still is slower and less convenient than YouTube. I uploaded the video below to each, and within minutes, it was available on youtube, but it’s still waiting for approval on Google.

I had thought about experimenting with a video podcast using Google Video, but the slow approval simply makes it unreasonable. It might be possible to do a good one using YouTube.

Oh, and the video above? The PDP-1 video I shot again, this time with sound (bad sound, but sound nonetheless).
