YouTube is a global video-sharing website headquartered in San Bruno, California, United States. This is where Roi and Alex Wassabi post their videos on their channel, Wassabi Productions.

History

The service was created by three former PayPal employees, Steve Chen, Chad Hurley, and Jawed Karim, in February 2005. In November 2006, it was bought by Google for US$1.65 billion, as one of Google's subsidiaries. The site allows users to upload, view, rate, share, and comment on videos, and it makes use of WebM, H.264/MPEG-4 AVC, and Adobe Flash Video technology to display a wide variety of user-generated and corporate media video. Available content includes video clips, TV clips, music videos, movie trailers, and other content such as vlogging, short original videos, and educational videos.
