Purchase and Download YouTube Videos
Today, YouTube announced that they will begin allowing select partners to charge a small fee for, or give away, their YouTube videos as downloads.
While most people would have no reason to download a rambly six minute vlog, many people would love the opportunity to download and re-watch (in higher quality) music videos, short films and other artistic videos uploaded to YouTube.
As a content creator who not only vlogs, but also regularly produces music videos and other creative content, I’m very excited about this new feature. Rather than going through the hassle of producing and selling a DVD that may include videos viewers don’t want, viewers could now purchase select, individual videos instantly.
Not everyone enjoys the commercial side of YouTube. But like everyone else, YouTube and it’s content creators have to pay the bills. Thankfully, YouTube is exploring creative options, instead of just pre-rolling a few Blackberry video ads.
