youtube Getting started with youtube What is YouTube


YouTube is an online video streaming service, unique in the fact that users can upload their own videos for the purposes of sharing whatever they recorded. This can range massively, from someone cooking breakfast, to playing a live concert. Now owned by Google Inc., this site has always been free to use and still is. The only difference being that you now require a Google account to sign in, whereas before it was a separate service. See the Installation or Setup guide for more.
