Everyone knows that in a life span of 5 years so far, YouTube has proven to become an extremely popular video sharing website, not only that, it also has shown live concerts and many special events, such as elections etc. The website was launched in Feburary 2005 by Chad Hurley, Steve Chen and Jawed Karim. These 3 individuals had worked hard to come up with an idea on sharing videos and had a tough job of getting the site really popular. In around November 2006 YouTube was sold to Google for $1.65 billion dollars. Ever since that time Google has been handling YouTube and making changes throughout the site. I guess we have to hand it to Google for being such a huge company, that they could manage hosting such concerts, live events etc. It just goes to show how much YouTube has changed in 5 years and yes we could all argue that the new design isn't the best. But hey, Google will be making constant changes and we could be expecting new things soon. After searching on YouTube, I managed to come across what was the first ever video posted on YouTube and all I could say was the quality of videos today on YouTube has changed so much, with HD and the ability to have widescreen.

Here is what was the first video ever to be posted on YouTube (With Jawed Karim):
