YouTube has added long form videos/movies, in the form of deals with indie filmmakers, and launched its YouTube Screening Room. "While the majority of these films have played at international film festivals, occasionally you'll find films that have never before screened for wide audiences," the company said. Four shorts to be released every two weeks, with feature-length projects to be considered on a case-by-case basis, reports NTV. The company is courting indie filmakers this week at the Los Angeles Film Festival.

Really? it seems like only 5 minutes ago Google were admitting that they couldn't find a way of making money out of Youtube. This has got to increase their bandwidth bill a bit hasn't it? maybe they have more money than they know what to do with.

Too bad putting your film on YouTube (still) completely destroys the quality and presentation.
The 1990's called, they want their QVGA 320x240 format back.

I don't get it. Why exactly has Google not yet placed 10 second ads in front of the videos yet? Is it because of the possible implications of placing advertising on videos infringing on copyrights? Wouldn't they make more money via the advertising than they spend on moderating the uploads?

At the very least they could make movies over a specified length require 10 second ads in front of them, and then just moderate THOSE videos.

It must be something more complex than that because it seems to me that this is not an overtly difficult decision...
