Channel 4 Shows On Youtube

Officially confirmed today, a landmark 3 year contract between Channel 4 and Youtube, which will see popular shows such as Skins and Peep Show on the video sharing website soon after initial broadcast. This is the first time Youtube will have allowed full length content since the Google takeover, something it has been trying to do for a long time now.
Since the take over three years ago, Google have been trying to make money back from the world's most popular video sharing website, removing all non-authorised content and replacing it with sponsored content from shows such as X-Factor and Saturday Night Live, although none of this has ever been full episodes.
Andy Duncan, Channel 4's Chief Executive explained that "Making our programmes directly accessible to YouTube's 20 million UK users will financially benefit both Channel 4 and our independent production partners and help bolster our investment in quality British content,"
The deal will not start until 2010, although it will include an archive of episdoes as well as current content. The deal isn't exclusive either, so the channel's on demand service - 4OD, will remain.

I'm running the free version of win 7 x64. I originally had 4GB of ram but pumped in an extra 4 GB yesterday and the start up/ shut down times are exactly the same, am I missing something ?

Nat nailed it on the head I think. Studies promoted like this nearly always have an alterior motive.

ram shouldnt have anything to do with it. its how fast the processor can process the startup threads and how fast it can access the files from the HDD

I'd disagree.

The size of the ram bears little consequence, but plays 'a' part, but the ram speed dictates how fast the cpu can play.

this is true, but the difference is negligable. to really see a difference you would need a much larger amount of ram. 4gb is fast enough to load up the pc, and ram isnt directly linked to the processor, but does have an effect. Overall these differences are tiny, although going from 512mb ram to 8gb ram would probably yield a noticeable difference XD

Yeah the difference will be more/less noticeable depending on the speed memory u compare.

Take the hp's in here running 4200u ddr2, sticking 5300 won't make too much difference, but above that u'll notice alot more.

Go way back to ddr and u'll definately notice 266/333/400 mhz with ur... Optiplex boot times.

Edit: My W7 boots fine.. seems faster than Windows Vista.. dunno about XP... not used it since about 2007

all that maters is that 7 is more stable than vista and xp and worth the $300 price tag!

21-10-2009, 05:22:25

Wow that's incredible, cos I find both XP & Vista stable !

21-10-2009, 08:29:33

And it doesn't have a $300 price tag either :/
