TPB creators announce "Video Bay"

The owners and creators of the successful file-sharing site "The Pirate Bay" announced "Video Bay", a potential rival to YouTube.

Quote:
The world's most high-profile file-sharing website, The Pirate Bay (TPB), has lifted the lid on its new video sharing website, The Video Bay.

Billed as a rival to YouTube, the service will offer unrestricted video content, in violation of copyright law.

It is not clear when the service will actually go live; the site's founders said "it will be done when it's done".

They also said:

Quote:
"This site will be an experimental playground and as such subjected to both live and drunk (en)coding, so please don't bug us too much if the site ain't working properly."
No technical details on video sizes/framerates yet, although it supports HTML5 video tags, so Ogg Vorbis and Theora the very likely candidates. Comparison to Stage 6?
