That Black Books clip you posted just told me:
This video contains content from Channel 4, who has decided to block it in your country.

Do not be quick to reveal judgment. Hidden judgment is often more potent. It can guide reaction whose effects are felt only when too late to divert them.

I think it's more about copyrights, Black Books being a UK Ch.4 show, they probably don't want UK viewers to watch even just 40s of one episode...
to coerce you into buying the dvds...

or register at megavideo...

losers...

A few months back I watched the entire series legally for free online on 4od :P


(Which series was that clip from - series 2 and 3 are still available in their entirety on the channel 4 site... so much for the dvd theory.)

Perhaps they think, correctly, that youtub stinks. If they're controlling the delivery they can ensure a less laggy watching experience.
