No it is because people dont feel like having to download a WHOLE other program to upload a video using a method that they don't have to use on other video sites they visit. Please guys, don't try to act like an upload system were you press a button, browse for the file, select it is not a standard SOMEWHERE in the world. I mean go to a college campus and ask all the students about FTP even with in the media and technical schools and more than half of them probably wont be able to tell you enough about them. I can't tell you how many times I've wanted to use FTP for a school collaboration project and no body knows what the heck it is. THAT is the generation we are faced with today. These are the same kids uploading the videos to sites like youtube. The fact is, being able to use an upload system similar to youtube is a lot simpler and puts a lot less strain and work on the user side.
EDIT: I've walked new editors through the upload system of the Org. That's when I've realized just how much of a pain it is. I was so used to the system, but the fact that people have to be TAUGHT how to upload says that something is wrong there.
You know you can upload it via Windows Explorer, right?
Btw, learning this should be the basics on the internet. If you don't know how to upload you should learn it.
And one more thing about easiness and standards - why not make the site completely in Flash? It's easy and it's colourful and it's nice. Of course it's not standard and if it doesn't load it doesn't load complete, but whatever ;x
