It's not ideal, but one workaround that viewers seem to like is to occasionally produce an 'inbox' video answering the better or most common questions received. 

Sort of like a mailbag but without the parcel ripping.

The main disadvantage is you lose the immediacy of a quick one line written comment. 

(and in my case an excuse to test a lash-up 1970s cassette recorder dynamic mic with the modern camera!)

That worked well, much better audio for that QA session. Keep that mic setup for future use, and get a cat tail for it or a foam condom for the wind noise.

Thanks.  Definitely a keeper.  An electret might be smaller (and have broader frequency response) but would require an external supply as the camera doesn't have voltage on its mic connector. Have had the Canon camera for a while but due to its MOV (rather than AVI) output it was a pain to transfer and convert files to the old 7yo / XP computer.  The new computer (plus the new Movie Maker software) has made things easier and better.

I'm already noticing some YouTubers banding together with other channels with similar content and opening their own web pages. They are still cross-posting content between the new sites and YT, but I think this is a step in the right direction.  If they can get their viewers to accept the new site, then they can gradually phase out YT.

That only works for a small scale fan base. To go bigger requires the huge infrastructure of Youtube or some other big player.

Hey, you gotta start somewhere.  A ton of YouTubers are very pissed off at the changes, and if they can band together enough to make a noticeable drop in YT revenues, maybe Google will take notice.
