Yesterday, I was blogging about Blip TV and Live Video . Upon checking Youtube today I was surprised to know that YouTube can now access. Good for us internet users in Saudi Arabia. I think this is because Youtube ban the pornography on their site.
You can find more about it on their help files,

If your video shows someone getting hurt, attacked, or humiliated, don’t post it. * YouTube is not a shock site. Don’t post gross-out videos of accidents, dead bodies and stuff like that. This includes war footage if it’s intended to shock or disgust. * Respect copyright. Only upload videos that you made or that you have obtained the rights to use.

I have posted some test video at You tube using my Cellphone and it works fine. although they suggest that the best format for their video should be as follows :
We recommend the MPEG4 (Divx, Xvid) format at 320×240 resolution with MP3 audio, at 30 frames per second. Resizing your video to these specifications before uploading will help your clips look better on YouTube.
Thanks God that there is a free service offered without pornography.
