Don't really see the point in having the typical YouTube comment in video form.

Their official statement (a few weeks ago, so you're late to the party) was that it is to combat all of the "reply girls" and general spam videos that tended to outnumber and outweigh legitimate video responses.

to combat all of the "reply girls"


Wow, it only took them what.. 2 or 3 years to come up with a solution? Except that really that doesn't change anything if their crap shows up under "suggested videos".

Actually according to this video:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gRwaP-9nC-E

The reason is because hardly anyone ever clicked on the video responses in the first place and therefore it wasn't profitable to keep it... Youtube doesn't give a f*** about content... they give a f*** about sales and marketing and how many people click on ads and stuff...

Video responses didn't get a lot of traffic so to them it wasn't worth using even though most people used video responses to send a response to ONE PERSON.

Sounds like the best idea since removing the 1-5 star rating system.

Really, how many video responses posted to your vids were just guys trying to gain subs and views with garbage content? "Hurr if Pewdiepiss accepts my video response maybe I'll get famous too"

Video responses were useful as video entries for a channel's contest. That was actually practical to use.

Can't you just set up your channel for subscription, and people who actually care about watching your videos in sequence can subscribe?
