Google is probably just angry that YouTube is doing way better than Google Video. Thier solution: buy out YouTube.

That's probably very true. But you've got to be pretty pissed to spend 1.6 billion dollars :D :mad2:

99.5% of the problems with you tube are having the wrong version of Java installed or not enabled in the browser. Also, if you use IE and it's infected with spyware, forget about you tube working correctly. Use Firefox, it's a better browser.

Hahaha, GoogleVideo is getting it's ass totally kicked by YouTube. I love YouTube, I've come up with more rationalizations for watching videos than I can remember.

I love watching Looney Tunes on Youtube. The stand up comedies are excellent too.
