YouTube is a video sharing platform often considered to be the biggest site for videos on the internet. Originally launched on February 14, 2005, by former PayPal employees Steve Chen, Chad Hurley, and Jawed Karim, it was sold to Google in 2006, where it has been owned by since. Most of the Alt-Vid community and their sites developed out of dissatisfaction towards YouTube and what it has become in the modern day, and most of the popular sites in the community, like Vidlii, BitView, Zippcast and others even recreate the functions and designs of past YouTube.

Currently the platform is undergoing its biggest change yet, when it has begun to take significant actions, such as taking a firm stance against people who false flag and, it takes a firm stance against the postage of illegal content, to the internet.
