    Update your YouTube account by linking to a Google Account
    You will no longer be able to sign in to YouTube without a Google Account.
    If you do not want to link this YouTube account, you can sign out here.

    It seems like all accounts are linking. I have found this to happen with blogger,yahoo,google,facebook,hotmail,and ofcourse the you tube.I noticed the pictures I post on my blog go into a picture folder in my picasa photo album!

    So create a Google account and don't use it for anything else...just log in once every few months to keep it "active"

    Not sure why that would be such a big deal, really...

    Then again, I have at least a dozen email accounts. [​IMG]

    Google owns youtube so it's the only logical thing to do. Why have to database's when you could have one?

    My Google account is one of the most useful accounts I have... I don't have Google email though. I got it originally for Google checkout but now I use Google to handle my advertising spaces to make me money.

    I had a google account before I signed up with youtube. I haven't had to sign in to either site since I made my youtube. I just sign into one and the other signs me in automatically. I don't remember why I got a google account, but I don't use it for anything now.
