Google To Introduce Pay Per View in YouTube

YouTube Pay Per ViGoogle is planning to better monetize it’s free video sharing site YouTube. So far, they were monetizing YouTube thru  advertising-supported service, but now they plans to build payment mechanisms into its video-sharing site.

So what’s the deal?

Google’s CEO said:

"With respect to how it’ll get monetized, our first priority is on the advertising side. We do expect over time to see micropayments and other forms of subscription models coming as well. We’ll be announcing additional things in that area literally very, very soon."

Although YouTube’s service is much popular , but it is also very expensive to operate, and Google has been working hard for months to come up with a more successful financial formula for sharing video.

Most of the Google’s Services are free to use, if they are planning so with the video sharing site, I think that will not make a hole in our pocket. But Yes, It will impose a limitation on me to use the service.

Well, I don’t feel that introduction of Pay Per View Concept will affect us so hard, coz there are many Video sharing alternatives to YouTube which would help us.

The major drawback of this concept for me and other publishers is the shared videos that are embedded on blogs and websites, but I hope that Google would have a solution for that too.

YouTube a Part of Google’s April Fool 2009

Today is April Fools day and Google and CADIE are celebrating the day online. YouTube one of the Google’s owned product had started hoaxing visitors.

Youtube's April Fool

Google-owned YouTube flips their videos upside down today part of a “New Viewing Experience”. YouTube suggests you turn “your monitor upside-down” as their internal tests have shown “that modern computer monitors give a higher quality picture” this way. Just append a “&flip=1” parameter to a YouTube video page URL, and the video and other parts of the page will be flipped. (Videos linked from the YouTube homepage also use the flip-parameter today.) You yourself can watch an example video at YouTube.

Well, If you don’t want to be a part of this celebration and need to see the video in actual condition, you can bring a little change in the url and can continue in your own way. Just remove the code “flip=1” from the end of the url, like: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RBtmcsJ0XUI&feature=featured&flip=1 you can change the url to this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RBtmcsJ0XUI.
