There are reports that YouTube is in talks with major film studios about showing their movies on its website.
YouTube, which is owned by Google and is yet to turn a profit, has apparently met Sony, Lionsgate and Warner Brothers about a potential deal.
The idea is that YouTube would offer users a chance to stream films for a rental fee.
An internet expert at Enders Analysis, Ian Maude says Google is hoping to use YouTube as a network operator in a lucrative market.
However, he says Google will have to grapple with a number of problems: including removing copyrighted material that's been uploaded illegally, and whether studios will feel comfortable with some of the other content that's posted on YouTube.
