Youtube for Non Profits
It's restricted to US and UK non profit organizations but Youthbe now has a non profit channel option. "So what" you ask? Well a lot as it actually has Google Checkout built in which allows donations to be directly sent via Youtube.
The check out the Youtube Non Profit page for more info. Let's hope they roll this out to Australia. This is a great move on Google's behalf as it could generate another revenue stream for non profits. It's early days, Mashable reported on it just a few weeks ago so we'll see if people are willing to part with cash while on Youtube. I can see non profits integrating the call for donations into their videos and even holding users to ransom for more funding until the next video is released (well maybe not but you get the idea).
Youtube also introduced Theatre view. For full length videos. It's a welcome feature as this "lights out" feature has been on other sites for a while. You can restrict YouTube's search results to feature length videos by appending &longform=1:
Cheers to Google System Blog for the tip.
