Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood on YouTube  
I feel like I might be mentioning something everyone already knows, but YouTube is streaming Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood with English subtitles. It looks like they post new episodes two weeks after they air in Japan, like Hulu does. I love how many (legal) streaming venues FUNimation is offering, but I don't know if providing it on YouTube is a smart move for them since it's so easy to download videos from that site. Oh well, doesn't really matter since the fans end up benefiting from it anyway.

Thank you very much!

Also, icon love. Colbert is my favorite.

COLBERT!!! (For a second, I was confused about which community this post was in cuz of that icon. XD)

Apparently it's pretty easy to download from FUNi's video site too (thus the One Piece fiasco) So maybe they don't mind it so much if people download, so long as they watch it and don't upload it... who knows?

I was under the assumption that FUNimation beefed up the encryption on their site after that SNAFU, which made it more difficult for people to download videos.

I'd still rather watch it on Madman as it provides good quality anime shows. I know FUNimation approved of that as well; streaming it on the madman website. I don't think you have to be Australian to watch it from there though.

From madman.com, and I quote:

"Sorry guys. Full episodes are for Australia and New Zealand users only. If you're from the U.S. we're guessing this might be the first time you've seen a message like this. Sorry"

Oh tough luck then. Luckily I'm from Australia. ;A;
Thanks for the follow-up. :3

Either way it still means only Americans get to benefit from this. :\

I'm sticking to my fansubs tyvm.

Really? You can only watch YouTube in the US?

Some channels are region-locked. For example I can't look at any videos Kadokawa posts. Places like Crunchyroll are pretty much out too.
