Chad Hurley, Ceo e co-fondatore del sito di videosharing, in un post sul blog ufficiale fa il punto su quanto avvenuto negli ultimi tre anni: dall’acquisizione della piattaforma da parte di Google, al  miliardo di views raggiunte in un giorno, fino ad una serie di principi che sono divenuti caratteristiche standard per l’online video:

Looking back at those early days, we were committed to some basic principles that have since become fundamental tenets in the world of online video:
Speed matters: Videos should load and play back quickly.
Clip culture is here to stay: Short clips are voraciously consumed and perfect for watching a wide variety of content.
Open platforms open up possibility: Content creation isn’t our business; it’s yours. We wanted to create a place where anyone with a video camera, a computer, and an Internet connection could share their life, art, and voice with the world, and in many cases make a living from doing so.

A quanto pare, i numeri continuano a crescere, e grazie all’evoluzione delle infrastrutture di connessione, sono stati aggiunti servizi come l’HD e la visione di interi film e TV show.

As bandwidth has increased, so has our video quality. As we’ve started to see demand for longer, full-length content, we’ve brought more shows and movies to the site (Chad Hurley)

E proprio relativamente alla visione di film su Youtube, domenica 18 ottobre sarà visibile interamente il capolavoro di Martin Scorsese con Robert De Niro, Taxi Driver. L’operazione, resa possibile grazie alla partnership con Crackle, prevede anche un contest UGC:

Well, if you think you’ve got a killer Bobby D. impression, now is the time to share it with the world.
Film yourself reenacting a scene from the movie, and post it as a video response to Taxi Driver. The best impressions will be featured in a blog next week. (Nate Weinstein)
