But why youtube started to accept all Videos and turn into a video sharing platform? That’s quite a story.

Jawed karim first searched about Super Bowl Incident of janet Jackson on 2004 and searched a video clip of tsunami but he did not got any of the video clips. Then he thought about creating a Video sharing platform because there was not enough video clips on the internet.
