How I Use It
I use YouTube to host nearly all my online learning content. To ability to post using the different levels of access (Public, Unlisted, Private) allows me to control who has access to my videos. YouTube makes adding closed captioning a snap, especially when the video is already transcribed. Finally, the auto editing features make my videos professional and clear.
My Take
As compared to other online video hosting sites, YouTube is superior in almost every way with the exception of being able to replace a video. I often go through several stages of editing, and I would prefer to be able to keep the same video URL.
