AOL Letting People Sell Videos

    January 2, 2007

I’m not planning on doing this – anyone want to buy boring, long videos with Web 2.0 CEOs? Heheh.

But, Paul Colligan reports that AOL is letting people sell videos now.

The problem with buying videos is that Netflix is renting me HD-DVDs for a few bucks each. Getting anything close to that quality would require one heck of a great Internet connection and a big hard drive. Not to mention that Hollywood will not give me movies without DRM attached.

So, that leaves stuff that the rest of us can do. What kind of Internet video would anyone ever want to pay for?

Porn. Even then you can get so much for free so why pay?

Anything else? I can’t think of anything that I’d put a few bucks down to view.
