Google just bought it for 1.65 Billion.

Google snaps up YouTube for $1.65B - Yahoo! News

It clearly states in there that You Tube never made a profit. Even with the 1.65 Billion dollars

i dont understand, is youtube supposed to make money?

i think making a site for a bunch of internet movies and selling it a few years later for 1.6bil is making some pretty dam good money.

All they did was provide a good place for people to violate copyright laws. It would be like somebody buying napster for a billion and a half, back when napster was all big.

It's true, I watched many anime episodes on there. All free of charge.

They didn't make any money. I don't see how not making money = pretty good money. They were in debt. No one wanted to advertise their products on youtube to a bunch of teenagers posting videos of their friends online. Nor did they want their ad to appear next to the copyrighted South Park episode that someone uploaded in full.

It was a legal mess and an advertisers nightmare.

Re: So Brent, YouTube is a bad idea for making money eeeeh?

so they were exactly 1.65 billion in debt cause they bought a few servers and hosted a few thousand videos?

i cant wait till google has their own internet service with built in file sharing. then when someone like the RIAA tries to come after them, google protects them and goes after the RIAA and dominates.

YouTube Gets Bandwidth Boost from Level 3 - Data Center Knowledge

A few servers? It's not even the servers that are costing them the most money. Its the bandwidth. Throw that on top of the datacenters that are required to process the 65,000 videos that users are uploading everyday and you have yourself on hell of a money sucking website
