I reported at SEW blog that Google Video Makes It Easier & Faster To Upload. The folks at WebmasterWorld are discussing it now. One Mac user is happy with the change. But the other commenter said he is upset with Google, not about the technology, but about how the producers of the videos are treated. They create content, give it to Google, but they have no profile page for the producer.
What is astounding is googles lack of credit to the publisher, no profile page, just an unclickable url. So, this is really google branding, we takes your content, no credit for you. do no evil to G$! Bad google, another shining example of total disrespect for those who make the medium happen.
youtube.com has a nice profile deal set up so that you can learn more about the person uploading, go to their web site etc., pretty cool (and fair).
