Youtube is also testing experimental features, you can test them with TestTube.

By my own opinion the service could be enhanced with these cool features:

– support more video formats (eg. Real Player)
– extend video lenght
– better quality (eg. like Vimeo)
– ability to record online in realtime from a streaming source (http/rtsp/rtp/mms)
– share a bit of a full video
– multiplatform official desktop player
– download videos without third party plugins
– better buffering
