Google buys “Episodic,” a platform for hosting "live and on-demand" video. Since Episodic's technology and team are being folded into YouTube, it's possible that we could see new ways for video creators to profit from their YouTube videos. Episodic team will join Google and continue its work to bring great video experience to Web, mobile phones and IPTV devices with no interruption.
