YouTube Everywhere

March 12, 2008

There is a popular TechMeme meme this morning on YouTube’s announcing its API which will allow 3d party apps and sites to use YouTube as an embedded video upload tool.

Smart move.

But will YouTube reserve the right to serve ads into those videos, even when they are viewed on the 3d party site? And, if the answer is “yes,” will the 3d party site get a healthy share of the ad revenue, ala AdSense?

Answers to these questions would, I should think, be pretty important for the developer community.

    YouTube actually already has a program to allow 3rd party sites to share in monetized videos from YouTube: AdSense Video Units (http://adsense.blogspot.com/2007/10/introducing-video-units.html)
