    Apple sell 1 million video downloads in 20 days

    Q1: How soon before other video download services pop up
    Q2: How soon before content providers get greedy and try for a bigger slice of the pie a la music downloads

    So who of you have downloaded videos? If not, why not and will you?

    Any other general comments welcome

    I haven't downloaded videos because:

    1. I don't have a device to play them and
    2. I have no interest in paying to download them again when I can just convert DVDs.

    I wont download videos because

    1 - many offical sites have free streams - which I can rip using one of the three stream rippers Ive got

    2 - Some fansites have music videos free to download

    I'd guess that will tail off a little. Most of it is people trying to see what their device can do.

    I downloaded Boundin' but will not do anymore. I've already figured out how to rip and convert so there's no point now.

    I'd download video - but only to play on my home PC. I don't want to watch a bunch of videos on the move as I travel to work, then have no battery life left to listen to music on the way home.
