It's been reported here and elsewhere that YouTube was in the process of beefing up its online catalog of films that users can stream to their computers -- and on Monday, the Google-owned company announced that 6,000 titles were now available, including recent hits 'The King's Speech,' 'Inception,' 'Little Fockers,' 'The Green Hornet,' 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows -- Part 1,' 'Burlesque,' 'Due Date,' 'Inside Job' and 'Despicable Me.'

Streaming costs range from $2.99 to $3.99 for a "24-hour pass," meaning you have one day to finish viewing a title once you begin it, but you have 30 days to begin watching the movie after you rent it.

Studios in the YouTube fold include NBC Universal, Sony Pictures, Warner Bros., Lionsgate, Starz, the Weinstein Co., Magnolia Pictures and others. Conspicuously absent are Paramount, Fox and Disney.
