Video a point of contention on Flickr any more?

I looked for groups opposing the introduction of video to Flickr in 2008. I only found two. One hardly had any  discussion. The two last photos on the other one had been sent to Flickr in April 2008. Opposition seems to have crumbled during the time that has passed or is not so important any more.
In one discussion somebody had written that they hated YouTube. It certainly has a lot of hateful stuff, but it a great source of music, especially classical, I've found so many things to enjoy there.

This interpretation of Cohen's Hallelujah by Jeff Buckley is one of the most beautiful ones I know. The fact that it is not a religious song in spite of the word does not matter. Christians can still enjoy the wonderful melody and be uplifted by their faith by listening to the word.
Somebody wrote:"This can be a lovely song but this dude sounds hollow and has no range. Which actually might be good because his lifeless shit doesn't need to range anywhere." I do not understand him: 'hollow'?
