    Bandwidth costs for streaming movies must be huge. How can these sites recover their costs? The sites I checked are not monitized very well. Please fill this noob in.

    Thanks

    maybe they just spend money and wait for their site to grow and after that they sell it.

    They don't make money atm... YouTube has no clue how they will make, neither does facebook... they are all making a loss.

    On the other hand, MySpace is making big profit :D

    Think outside of the box, one of my method earns me a ton!

    You know I personally think google brought youtube as they didnt want it to become another MySpace. Cuz Myspace earns a lot of its money from the google ad's :)

    Facebook, meh, they need to get some decent servers + code before they can even think of charging, its slow as, and full of errors.

    facebook and youtube make a lot of money?

    not sure what you mean.

    If you mean compared to the average company, then yes.
    if you mean compared to the average black hat forum member, then yes.

    compared to other companies valued at a similar price, no, they really dont generate a lot of profit.

    hence why verizon and google were rumoured to be looking at the two tier internet idea, charging a premium price for users streaming their content at its current speed, whilst others, watching videos at a slower pace, would have no charge to pay.

    a simplified version of the idea, but i was trying to makie it simpler.

    no, youtube and facebook dont make that mcuh money, relatively.
