So anyone buy any video from Google yet ?
« on: January 13, 2006, 10:40:08 PM »

  I bought a Twilight Zone episode (Time Enough at Last) w/Burgess Meredith for $1.99,just to check it out.
Decent quality,at a little under a half hour,about 26 minutes,the video weighs in at 97.8 MB,i'm on dial-up too :o.
So something will have to be pretty special for me to download again.While i like how they let you download the
video,the service requires you too log in with your google account to determine ownership.There is no such thing
as good DRM.I will twiddle my thumbs and wait for the hack ;)

 I think it will most likely be a hit,especially in the music video department.That and opportunity for independant
freelancers out to make a buck is a pretty cool ideal.As far as watching a full commercial film release,no thanks,
i'd rather own the dvd.

as you say this will be nice if it helps independent filmmakers, otherwise it doesn't do anything for me.
