The first video on YouTube

In 2005

YouTube was founded by Steve Chen, Chad Hurley and Jawed Karim, who were all former PayPal employees. Their original inspiration came from the desire for video accessibility. The first ever video uploaded features Karim and is titled, “Me at the zoo.” The video now has over 40 million views.
