    Thumbs up YouTube new API - great opportunity for niche video website
    Just in case you did not hear about the good news from YouTube:
    YouTube released a new version of it Data API. The big improvement with the new API is the ability to embed YouTube component in a way visitors will not leave your website to see more videos.

    I think Its a great opportunity to develop niche video website and to monetize them. A year ago I was in contact with MetaCafe about this kind of stuff but they were not ready at that time. I know that I am going to use it for one of my site because its so needed there.

    You can read about it in my blog (I hope I am allowed to post its url)

    I think its great, don't you?

    Direct link to the google information on this is:

    It looks like you can allow people to upload videos through your own site to YouTube also... some powerful stuff here. Thanks for bringing it to our attention!

    yep, very powerful.
    You can do much more than allowing people to upload video.
    You can do almost all the action that they are doing on YouTube website without leaving your website.

    To establish my point.
    I just came across a an article about this website - wegame.com/
    Its was developed by a 19 years old person. This website allow visitors to upload the video that they recorded while playing a game on their computer.
    So... its actually a niche website for gaming video clip. He raised $3M !!!
    Just to give you a clue about the potential of a niche video website.

    Would it be better to copy the entire post to the forum ?

    BTW, We met in Vegas. You looked like a nice guy. I know I am a nice guy. I spent my time to bring to your attention something valuable (and complex btw). I do it with joy.

    I heard people talking about been afraid to ask questions on this forum. I wonder what the other members on this forum have to say. Epically those who are already running planes in their mind how to use this new technology to make more money.

    I must say that I feel a bit offended.

    Take my words in a positive way. We all do mistakes.

    Cheers,
    Shay

    Shay,

    Don't drop links, especially to your site.

    If that offends you then, imagine how I feel paying for your advertising.
