 About YouTube

Founded in February 2005, by early commerce pioneers of PayPal, YouTube is a
consumer media company for people to watch and share original videos worldwide
through a Web experience. Prior to YouTube, there was no easy way for individuals
to share video on the Web. Dealing with hundreds of multimedia formats, massive
file sizes and difficult uploading methods made sharing personal video clips on
the Web a daunting task for even the most tech-savvy individual.

With its revolutionary technology, YouTube has given people the ability to easily,
upload, tag and share video clips through, across the Internet, and
through email as well as to create their own personal video network. With over 25
million videos served up daily and investment support from Sequoia Capital,
YouTube is set to become the Internet's premier video service.
