This chapter examines the development of video production and editing practices among General Hospital (GH) fans in a study of how fans use YouTube to distribute historic soap opera content. It suggests that many GH viewers enjoy watching and analyzing soaps online, and gravitate toward websites such as YouTube because of its ease of use and the ability to watch clips uploaded by other fans (a feature not available on any of the networks’ own sites). YouTube makes the soap opera watching experience significantly more flexible.
