As the dust settled from the Revolutionary War, America’s founding fathers hashed out a three-branch political system that was entirely novel.
An elected civilian—the president of the United States of America—would lead the federal government, enforcing the laws of the land and acting as commander-in-chief of the armed forces, heading a governmental structure that has remained in place for more than 200 years.
It offers a wide variety of user-generated and corporate media videos.
Available content includes video clips, TV show clips, music videos, short and documentary films, audio recordings, movie trailers, live streams, and other content such as video blogging, short original videos, and educational videos.
You Tube is an American video-sharing website headquartered in San Bruno, California.
The service was created by three former Pay Pal employees—Chad Hurley, Steve Chen, and Jawed Karim—in February 2005.
Karim did not attend the party and denied that it had occurred, but Chen commented that the idea that You Tube was founded after a dinner party "was probably very strengthened by marketing ideas around creating a story that was very digestible".
Karim said the inspiration for You Tube first came from Janet Jackson's role in the 2004 Super Bowl incident, when her breast was exposed during her performance, and later from the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami.
You Tube accepts videos that are uploaded in most container formats, including AVI, MP4, MPEG-PS, Quick Time File Format and FLV.
Previously, viewing You Tube videos on a personal computer required the Adobe Flash Player plug-in to be installed in the browser.
The You Tube site had a page that allowed supported browsers to opt into the HTML5 trial.
All You Tube users can upload videos up to 15 minutes each in duration.
Users who have a good track record of complying with the site's Community Guidelines may be offered the ability to upload videos up to 12 hours in length, as well as live streams, which requires verifying the account, normally through a mobile phone.
