The status of video has shifted from that of a discreet medium, available only through one way channels of delivery and consumption from producer to viewer, to that of a flexible and combinable form of communication: one that can function as an exchange and a dialogue between users. This chapter explores how the cultural and aesthetic values of immediacy and intimacy are performed in contemporary online video texts and in the way they are circulated. It also suggests ways in which oppositions and comparisons between professional and amateur practices need to be rethought and redefined.
