    It took me all of five seconds to upload a video onto Itunes and watch it.

    But it's taking Youtube what I project to be at least an hour to upload it.

    And it's taking my computer 18 minutes (and its still going up) to just copy it. Wtf?

    Well, iTunes just accesses files that are on your computer already, if you're importing a file to it. But Youtube needs to actually copy it to their own servers, so of course it'll take longer.

    You do realise that there a ridiculously HUGE number of people's uploading their shit to youtube constantly. The servers must be working at max all the time.
