Disadvantages: too much rubbish to be found
I first found out about you tube in about mid 2006 I think. Its a brilliant idea that has captivated the world and made many a students assignments late because they were to addicted to the 'tube'.
You wanna learn how to back flip, just find a tutorial on youtube. you wanna learn how to rebuild an engine, just find a tutorial on youtube. you wanna learn how to sing, just find help and advice on youtube, its all there and easily at the click of a button, with low quality and HD content option for people with slower connections too.
Its so versatile because you can use vide3os for reference and research as well as just fun or recreational use, you want to learn or do something but want to see someone else try it out first or you're not quite sure how to do it, youtube is the place, the number one place to go.
The layout of the site is pretty clear cut, if a little cluttered on the homepage but on each video's page, I think everything is pretty well laid out, they have a full screen option, however I wouldn't recommend this with terrible quality videos because they will just look even worse.
Make an account and there you go, you will have full access to the world of youtube although there's not that much to benefit by becoming a member, only thing I can see is that by becoming a member you can add videos and view over 18 video clips that people rate as over 18.
Summary: Good site,visit if you never have, you'll be hooked
