The Week: Media news - YouTube trials sharing site

You Tube is trialling a service that allows users to download videos on a free or paid-for basis, as a substitute for watching clips that are streamed over the internet.

The video-sharing site has said that the move could help drive usage, because it will allow users to find, watch and share their videos offline. Content partners will be allowed to choose to offer their video downloads for free or for a small fee, and will be able to decide the terms on which content may be used.
