Youtube has made some changes recently. First, a Live Event and now Wide Screen Format. And in the near future, collabration with MGM to showcase full movies. Wow, I think Youtube has finally gotten the wake up call that there are so many competitors out there.
BTW, this is the latest trailer of Transporter 3.
More information after the break.
From Straits Times:
WASHINGTON – YOUTUBE, after years of complaints over the size of its video player, expanded the size of its screen on Tuesday, adopting a widescreen format.
The Google-owned video-sharing site, which has also been experimenting recently with high-definition video, announced the change to a widescreen format in a posting on the YouTube blog overnight.
‘Over the years we’ve heard a lot of feedback from you about what you’d like to change about YouTube, and the size of our video player is always top of mind,’ YouTube said.
‘We’re expanding the width of the page to 960 pixels to better reflect the quality of the videos you create and the screens that you use to watch them,’ it added.
The switch to a widescreen format is the latest in a number of recent moves at YouTube, which was purchased by Google for US$1.65 billion (S$2.5 billion) in 2006 but has been unable so far to turn its massive popularity into profits.
