YouTube Channels – Take That Yahoo!

Just a few days after Yahoo revamped its video search with channels, on-line video leader YouTube has done the same. Channels in YouTube work the same way as Yahoo and in some ways better. The idea is you can see all the videos by a single person or entity. Also, via RSS, you can subscribe to these channels. One thing that makes YouTube channels a little better than Yahoo is the landing page for a channel. That page in YouTube looks amazingly like a MySpace page. There are ways to contact the channel owner, a list of their videos, a list of the channel owners favorite videos and who is subscribed to that channel. Looks very much like a video social network.
