So I noticed that the YouTube channel hasn't been updated with the Aliens:CM Quicklook, and that the video shows YouTube as Member's Only. Is this actually the case? If so, that's extremely disappointing. I'd love to subscribe to the site, but budgets being the way they are, can't make it happen. Being able to watch Giantbomb videos anywhere on any device thanks to YouTube was my #1 way of consuming GB content. If that's all gated now...well, there goes pretty much all of my interaction with GB, outside the Bombcast. Shame.

Doesn't putting them on Youtube benefit them by saving them money on bandwidth costs anyway?

I'd like to know about this as well. I do watch a lot of stuff from the site using the YouTube app on my phone.

That may end though, as it seems that by going to the site on my phone I get a more mobile friendly version rather than the desktop site like I used to. Thought that was a subscriber-only feature, but I guess it's not anymore? Admittedly, I don't keep up with the goings-on behind the scenes of the site itself as much as I should or could. Heh.

I tried viewing the youtube video (here on the site) earlier and it came up with a message saying 'This video has been removed because it is too long.' I guess it was uploaded but has since been removed by a bot.

Take into account the new site launch. The long video (Youtube doesnt like long videos) and that the guys are most likely more worried about working out bugs.

There is a whole ton of reasons that a video is no on youtube. Dont assume just because one video is wonky that its all members only now.

Edit.

I got like 4 Internal errors just trying to refresh this page. So ya site is still kindy janky.

That's certainly fair. Mainly what prompted my questioning was that when selecting video types from the main site, when you mouse over the YouTube option, it shows Members Only. Had it just been the video not being posted yet, I would have chalked it up to relaunch issues. I guess we'll see.
