Not necessarily; it depends on where the majority of the fanbase that listens to/looks for songs like ours will be. For some it's YouTube; for me it's NG (strangely enough!)

If yt had a music only upload then yes i would agree but i have to make a video everytime wich due to me not having proper media for it always results in a decline in the sound quality and its a huge timewaster to render.

True that. Unless you have lyrical songs you'd like to share and you display them on the video itself instead of using a still image (like what I often used to do). Or alternatively: you could wind up with something like this... which takes effort but is rewarding. : )

Not necessarily: this one took me a day or two only. All you need is PowerPoint (with well done transitions/animations and the right slide width/height), screen capture software (I use CamStudio) and Windows Movie Maker and you're good to go!

Definitely soundcloud. There are networks of people in every subgenre that will let you network through their pages/playlists.
