According to a story that has often been repeated in the media, Hurley and Chen developed the idea for You Tube during the early months of 2005, after they had experienced difficulty sharing videos that had been shot at a dinner party at Chen's apartment in San Francisco.
Karim could not easily find video clips of either event online, which led to the idea of a video sharing site.Available content includes video clips, TV clips, music videos, movie trailers, and other content such as video blogging, short original videos, and educational videos.Most of the content on You Tube has been uploaded by individuals, but media corporations including CBS, the BBC, Vevo, Hulu, and other organizations offer some of their material via You Tube, as part of the You Tube partnership program.Unregistered users can watch videos, and registered users are permitted to upload an unlimited number of videos and add comments to videos.Videos deemed potentially offensive are available only to registered users affirming themselves to be at least 18 years old.You Tube is a global video-sharing website headquartered in San Bruno, California, United States.
The service was created by three former Pay Pal employees in February 2005.
In November 2006, it was bought by Google for US$1.65 billion.
The site allows users to upload, view, rate, share, and comment on videos, and it makes use of Web M, H.264/MPEG-4 AVC, and Adobe Flash Video technology to display a wide variety of user-generated and corporate media video.
You Tube offered the public a beta test of the site in May 2005.
The first video to reach one million views was a Nike advertisement featuring Ronaldinho in September 2005.
Following a $3.5 million investment from Sequoia Capital in November, the site launched officially on December 15, 2005, by which time the site was receiving 8 million views a day.
