Unlike most other sites, Youtube is the only video hosting website of its size, there is no competition whatsoever, and thus there is no need for Youtube to strive to become better.

Social networking sites: Myspace, Facebook, Twitter
Search engines: Yahoo, Bing, Google
Online shopping sites: Amazon, eBay
News Media: Fox, ABC, NBC, CNN

Oligopoly, OP. They're similar, but different enough. Monopoly assumes that they have the entire market to themselves while an oligopoly more or less means they simply dominate the market they're in with perhaps a few other close competitors; all of which are far above the level of the rest.
