A. Not everyone has a website to host them on, neither do they want one.
B. Movies are big, take a lot of storage and transfer if they get
popular and can't easily be blocked from hotlinking. YouTube is free
C. The viral factor. If your main goal is reach, you'll get
thousandfold the views on YouTube than most people would on their own sites.
D. Sharing. The easy-to-embed feature.
But I agree with what has been said. Google has gotten too big and
too nosy. Most annoying is that their main product, the web search,
has become a mares nest of obscured "features" you have to opt out
from and you can only hope to hear about them or you won't even have
an idea they are there. For example the horrible customized search.
Why would anyone want certain sites at the top of the search result
just because they have clicked through to them before? Beats me.
Regarding Yahoo! Groups, let's wait and see what happens. Most of the
things mentioned would affect only a minor part of users.
