An enormous video sharing service for adverts. Also hosts a few user generated videos.
I had to install adblock before I was able to watch a 10 second video on YouTube without first watching a 30 second ad.

A site where you can upload your own videos and watch other peoples. Like MTV but you can choose what music you want, or just watch something random. Also full of homemade music videos, and films made for fun or to promote new film makers.
It's MUCH BETTER than television and provides a way to experience "media" without everything being controlled by "Them" (i.e. government, big business, and Rupert Murdoch.)
Let's face it, television is mostly abject propaganda, and YouTube is a way for real people to talk about things that matter, not what The Corporation want you to watch. Also of course you can watch fights, car crashes, and people doing stupid things, comedy animals, rants, documentaries about 9/11 being an inside job, etc etc, and indeed etc.
The big mystery of YouTube is - how come there isnt any Porn on it? Surely they can't watch everything that's uploaded? It's a mystery and I want answers! Luckilyu there is also such a thing as pornotube.
YouTube could become the replacement for television one day.

A site that was once good, full of artists who liked to have a place to express their work and get useful and constructive criticism. This was when it first started.

Now it is home to:

-Stupid wannabe hackers trying to post tutorials.

-5 year old children who claim they are 26.

-People who spam the comments section with webcam links.

-People who constantly ask, "what song is that?".

-Annoying people who keep asking how to do something despite it clearly being explained.

-People who give every video they encounter the lowest rating possible (1 star).

-People who continuously post "please subscribe to my channel" on every video description.

-People who use the new video annotation function to post "subscribe!" all over the place.

-Angry people ranting about why they hate parking spaces and everything in between.

-People who try to make funny or amusing videos involving a "mash-up" of video clips.

-People who do product reviews who have absolutely no idea what they are talking about.

-Idiots trying to do stunts that fail horribly.

-People who use "U" and "UR" in tutorial videos.

-People who use Windows Movie Maker and don't even change the colors.

-People who post videos with excessively loud music that takes your focus off the video.

-A code that everyone uses on their site to embed videos because nobody has ever heard the concept of embedding their own videos.

-People who use the crappiest encoding formats that sound like crap.

-Failed comedians who try to copy off of Saturday Night Live and Mad TV.

-People who like to quote movies or re-make them.

-Some of the most foul mouthed little children who like to abuse the word "fuck" in every comment and/or video title.

In other words, YouTube used to be fairly decent, but then little idiots took over and now the rest of us are thrown into this swirl of atrocity they call videos.
Person 1: Hey man lets make a YouTube video we think is going to be funny, and then we will get angry when someone tries to comment against it!

Person 2: Yea! Then we can put loads of video annotations all over our video that tell people to subscribe!
