YouTube goes to the movies

YouTube has something new to check out – movies that have been uploaded for viewing through their site. And not only movies, documentararies also feature along with Television shows. Take a look at the following screenshots to get an idea of some of the content that is available;

This screenshot shows televison progams available from their Science and Technology category;

When you click on a movie or program you want to view you are taken to a viewing window much larger than what we are used to seeing.

You can still have the option of viewing in full screen mode. The picture quality is surprisingly good; much better than if you viewed in full screen a regular Youtube upload. The only downside is that some of the movies are not available for viewing in Australia. My husband was very disappointed to discover he couldn’t access Cliffhanger, one of his all time favourite action movies!

Thanks to Alec Couras and Dan Coleman for the heads up to this new initiative from YouTube.
