While that may be true, bandwidth is becoming increasingly cheaper. Google will break even eventually. Small price to pay for them in the long run.

@J_rad, what do you base that on? I looked at Google's last quarterly and annual earnings filings and cannot find a breakdown for Youtube.
@setzer, Google gets its bandwidth cheap (it owns a fair amount of fibre), so it may already be profitable.

Youtube isn't the medium, it's the method, so who cares. No disrespect intended but if the videos move so would the people.
