The most popular video-hosting site. Millions of users upload their videos on virtually any subject out there (although nudity is not allowed).
Each video can be rated and commented on, which is not a good idea at all. Most of the comments in almost ANY video consists of 12-year old kids with no spelling or grammar skills; 30+ year old pseudo-intellectuals who try to tell everyone else how they're right and the others are wrong; racists; or people who just like to pick fights for no reason. If for whatever reason you feel like losing a few brain cells and want to look at the comments, be prepared to see a lot of "noob", "faggot", "gay", "Republican/Democrat", or "nigger" being used.
Aside from the comments, Youtube used to be a decent place, until the following started happening:
1. WMG started deleting music videos and muting videos with ANY piece of audio by any of the music artists under their labels
2. Viacom sued Google, which Youtube is owned by, having them delete many videos of TV shows
3. The majority of the user base became 14-year old tween girls obsessed with Twilight and the Jonas Brothers
4. Fred became the most popular user. Seriously, that alone is reason to avoid this place like the black plague.
Now, there is almost nothing left worth watching on Youtube, except for maybe some Failblog videos, Youtube Poops, or music videos of bands NOT owned by WMG. And even these can be ruined just by looking at the comments. It can be the most non-provoking, non-violent, socially-acceptable video ever, and you'll still see someone flaming the holy hell out of someone, whether it be the author, or another commenter.
"Hmm... I want to go on Youtube. What's new?"
*sees lots of Twilight and Jonas Brothers videos*
"Whoa, not cool. Ok... I'll see the POPULAR videos!"
*sees whole lot of Fred and High School Musical videos*
"Uhh... ok... lemme just do a search for a band I like"
*sees a video, clicks it, finds out it was deleted by WMG*
"Aw fuck! ... well it's ok... I'll just search for some funny stuff now... maybe someone slipping off a diving board?"
*finds video, reads comments*
"Geez... can I find some peace ANYwhere?? Ah, I know!! I'll look at a video of a cute puppy! Surely no one will have anything bad to say there!"
*finds video, reads comments*
"WHAT??? He said he wants to kick the shit out of that dog??? How dare he?!? And then he called the author a faggot?!? That's it... I'm DONE with Youtube!! DONE!!!"
YouTube is a website that allows users to upload and share videos worldwide. Launched in Febuary 2005 by three former members of paypal, YouTube has seen immense success, and as of March 2006 roughly 20,000 videos are uploaded daily.
-YouTube, "Broadcast Yourself."
I made a video blog on YouTube.
I found Audioslave concert videos on YouTube.
Parents should be aware of what their children post on YouTube, as there are many perverts and perverted comments.
Yet another way to waste time at work.
My boss walked into my office and almost caught me on YouTube.
A website that encourages its users to "Broadcast Yourself," and allows people to upload videos of nearly anything. Though it was announced in October 2006 that the site was going to be taken over by Google, the REAL takeover is already occuring, under the radar, by the following groups:
1.) Overcaffeinated fifteen-year-olds with camcorders, Windows Movie Maker, and way, way too much free time.
2.) Anime fanatics who believe that virtually every song sounds better when remixed with completely random clips from their favorite episode of Naruto.
Omigod! So, like, Ashley and I uploaded the sweetest video of ourselves dancing to the latest Fergie song onto Youtube!!
A website for you to 'broadcast yourself.' Users can upload videos of practically anything that can be voted or commented on by other users.
Youtube hosts some awesome fight videos!
A site where you can upload videos and watch videos other people have made. Great idea in theory but is spoiled by all the negative comments by people who can barely spell, probably won't last much longer because people will just choose not to upload their videos.
Two actual messages sent to me on Youtube

I hope you know you've completely ruined mine and other people's favourite songs. I hope you get ovarian cancer and die D:
A sweet ass website,that is the shit when it comes to finding fight videos,and any other jump-off you can't find anywhere else.
Sometimes it sucks because when you leave a comment that is negative,and sometimes positive, things can get very racial and just out-of-hand.
What you will witness on youtube.com very often...
*Video: A sissy fight between two dudes,thats very one sided.*
Me: Ayo,that dude got his ass handed to him...But both of them couldn't fight. holla
