At its heart, YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/) is an online community designed for the sole purpose of allowing people to share their movies with others.

However, it has grown to much more than just a simple video sharing website over the years since its inception and has actually become a full fledged internet phenomenon. These days, the effect of YouTube on society cannot totally be comprehended.

It has been a driving force in breaking news stories, has allowed countless videocasters or bloggers to become household names, and has contributed to many peoples' fifteen minutes of fame. However, despite all of these positive aspects of YouTube, there is an underlying problem with copyright infringement that still haunts this amazing web domain.

To be honest, there has never been a better time than now to get involved in the YouTube community. There are all kinds of people there from all walks of life and they all share the same passion for good, well crafted movies that can help them pass the time with a smile on their face.

Whether you want to create a YouTube account so that you can interact with people from around the world or if you would like to submit videos in an attempt to get your online business name out there - the world of YouTube will welcome you with open arms.

Now, there are a few things about YouTube though that you need to keep in mind if you want to have as much fun as possible. Try not to be insulting or overly complementary with your comments on the work of others and do not even think about submitting movies that may violate some existing copyrights.

Also, when you do submit your own work, only submit the good stuff as there are far too many boring and tasteless videos on YouTube and we certainly do not need any more to sift through just to find a good video here or there.

In the 1990s when the World Wide Web was first invented, the hot new thing was the website. It was pretty amazing to be able to see text and images created by someone thousands of miles away on the tiny screen on your computer.

From there, users of the internet realized that there was much more to the Web than just text and images, and the dawn of digital music and mp3s were born shortly thereafter.

But that still was not enough. Users wanted full motion from their internet browsing experience. It was then that video became the hottest trend on the internet.

Now, video has been around for quite some time on the internet - but it was not until YouTube came around that it became so popular. Previously, you could visit a website or two that had some cool videos to watch or you could just download a clip or two off of an FTP website.

This was all well and good, but people wanted more of a community feel to their web videos. They wanted to be able to share their favorite clips with anyone and everyone at the touch of their mouse button - and that is where YouTube shines.

YouTube may not have invented the internet video website but it certainly made it as popular as it is. Because of YouTube, anyone with a cell phone camera and a few minutes on their hands can create a video, submit it to YouTube's database and be as famous as they want. It is great for people looking to boost their self esteem as well as people who want to draw some extra visitors to their website.

As long as you can provide videos on YouTube that people will like, you will be almost guaranteed to make it famous in no time flat - and that is the true value of video on the internet thanks to YouTube.
