Geotagged YouTube layer in Google Earth

I know this is late but awhile back the GoogleEarth launched the YouTube layer. Does anyone else have a problem with how poorly most of these videos are georeferrenced? We had discussed this idea a bunch working on the California MLPA. After browsing the layer in GE while looking at the layer that GreenInfo put together I was bummed. There's some pretty good stuff but most of it is noise landing way out in the ocean. Take a look at Pt Reyes - lots of concert footage...that's neat. Just the type of thing to make people who are inherently skeptical of the usefulness of this to write it off. Not mention that I geotagged my video of Bolinas almost two years ago and its not picked up by the layer. What's up?
