At this stage, YouTube Inc. is still the one everyone's got in their sights. And that relatively few sites have bested it in our rankings should say something about how the company has managed to keep itself from falling apart despite having what PR people would call an "Elvis year."
"If you have a video of your child's first steps or a video of your wedding, is YouTube really the place you want to put it?" asks Fliqz founder Benjamin Wayne.
Indeed, the critics' claws come out when YouTube is mentioned, but there's a good reason for that. Most are coming to realize that, even though YouTube is mainly known for its viral videos, the site does work well, and it remains one of the few sites where you can keep a video private on its site, while at the same time publishing it to a personal blog.
So your wedding videos may be safe on YouTube after all.
We liked YouTube's general functionality and noticed that loads of other sites use its menus and navigation as a template. We would have been harsher about YouTube's file size limit of 100 Mbytes, but the site does offer a "director" program for most kinds of content producers, where the limits are easily discarded. Finally, we love YouTube's user-friendly approach, but a little basic editing tool would boost the site's popularity and usage times even more.
