    So far I've managed to live more than 42 years without Youtube, and I'm fairly confident that I shall manage henceforth as well.

    My life would be the same as it was before youtube. In fact, life was a lot simpler and easier before mobile phones and the internet.

    I'm sure the world would keep turning. There's always metacafe and others.

    "If the door will close for Youtube then there are so many windows that can be opened", crunchyroll is a good one, faster but of course we can't forget about the History of Youtube, we should conduct a annual celebration of its death if it dies - which I think will not!

    Youtube is the comic relief we all need sometimes... Perhaps the best innovation since instant messaging.

    youtube has helped me learn so much about the world we live in , especially the politics side of it. eg i can put 'who controls the world' and get plenty of very interesting videos. Also learnt so much about the 911 issue and because of such videos i now am convinced it was unfortunately done by the US gov itself. Very sad. So you tube has been very informative for me. Without it i would still be clueless about the truths of many things.

    best regards

    Youtube is a great website, but I could live without it easily.

    YouTube has great and terrible qualities. First of all, I can't believe it gets away with allowing blatantly copyrighted material. It's an intellectual property lawyer's dream. On the bad side, it has become a dumping ground for every megalomaniac: here's my opinion, here's my song, here's my wacky video, here's my hot girl/boyfriend, etc., etc... it's great that people have a place to showcase their stuff, but the tsunami of personal videos gets both overwhelming and boring.

    If it disappeared I would miss it. But it wouldn't take long to get over it.

    I'd miss a lot more TV shows and also I love it for seeing live clips of bands.

    YouTube is fantastic.

    I don't use it much, but when I do, I can find exactly what I'm looking for.

    Mock The Week clips, Piano (I particularly enjoyed the animated video of the old man playing Comptune d'un Autre Ete by Yann Tierson - http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=Sr64NI33qUo - it encouraged me to learn it, and thanks to the other clips on youtube and free sheet music sites, I learned it in less than a day), Extraordinary People episodes, Stewie(Family Guy)'s 2 girls 1 cup reaction, other family guy clips - it's got so much on there.

    Oh, and for musical people there are so many examples of expert playing. Drummers, for example, would love to be able to do this: http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=kzqpiU...eature=related

    No replacement for me.

    There are lots of video streaming sites. By the way, I don't like YouTube because it has a time limit on uploading a file.
