Actually, this is something I am doing right now. I uploaded a standard definition (640 pixel) version of my music video to YouTube. ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zgDpp7PrQEs ) If someone likes it, they can buy the HD quality (1920 pixel) version from me at the link in the YouTube description.

You wouldn't believe how hard it was to do this. Not to create the HD file, to get it into an online store. You see, the biggest online store of songs and videos only sells 50MB 640-pixel resolution music videos. Even if you are Jennifer Lopez. How many people will buy such a smooshed file when YouTube plays better quality (720 pixel) for free? Houston, we got a problem.

So I didn't only have to record video in HD, I had to create a whole online store to sell it too. I basically duplicated Freeform (Quirk and Calhoun)'s work. Well, good to know that media titans think the same way I do.
