Was it once it had gotten big? Did you upload or watch something? How did you find out about? I first found youtube when a friend had uploaded home videos on it, and I use to watch them. Later I created my own and uploaded them, this was before I was bought by google. Can you even remember the first time? What is the oldest memory you have of the website?

Hi chubit! The first time I used youtube was about 3 years ago I think. The first video that I watched was the "Evolution of Dance." It was quite entertaining. I remembered that youtube's viewing screen is just small and not widescreen. The next videos that I have watched were videos from the "Backdorm boys." Very funny indeed. I just signed up for an account about a year ago but haven't uploaded any videos. Happy mylotting!

I'm very impressed that you remembered from 3 years ago! How did you find out about it? I think the person who introduced it to me just stumbled across it! Seems absurd that such a small website back then could become so big.

Hi! I knew about the site when it was featured in NHK, a broadcasting channel here in my country. About the videos, "Evolution of Dance" was featured on youtube's homepage before so I got curious about it. And about the "Backdorm boys," my online chinese friend introduced me the video. Youtube has reached it's success. Just from a simple video sharing site, now a gigantic one! ^_^

I agree, most big sites go there from peer to peer sharing. I normally ignore adverts to websites, its only when its recommended to me that I join, even mylot! I hope mylot gets as big, it deserves it ^^.

Most of the best videos are caught on the spur of the moment. I once a fantastic series of two people playing practical jokes on each other!

When I first discover on how to use the internet, I remember I've always wanted to watch everything on youtube, especially the music videos of my favorite singers.. It really made me entertained. Because you can find almost all of the videos you want to see on you tube.

I think thats what is best about youtube. I do not have music channels so if I hear a song on the radio or hear about a new album, I check it out on youtube. It also gives me a chance to see music videos i wouldn't have gotten to watch otherwise.

3 years ago I spent a lot of time on a Danish forum, and there was a category about music. In this category there were many discussions about music videos from Youtube, and many people added links to Youtube. At that time I had another computer, and I didn't have any speakers or headphones, so I wasn't able to listen to the music. I was sad about that, because the links looked interesting. When I finally got some headphones I was really excited and I couldn't stop listening to new and old music videos

I thik musi videos was what got everyone into youtube, it was like this amazing resource of all your favourite music.. And all the music you forgot you liked. ^^ Oh and i also did not have speakers or head phones for my computer for a very long time! These days that sounds odd, but I went months without, odd really how things change.

I remember I started using youtube when my little brother was showing me videos on there that were funny. I from then started getting hooked especially when I saw people uploaded old school music videos and anime. Now I watch everything from how to videos to watching kittens swimming in water.

Do you ever watch music videos made from anime? I have wasted far too many hours of my life doing this.. I remember when you could watch fruit baskets on there, now you cannot find fruitbaskets anyhere!! Youtue is great for using your life unproductively ^^.
