Rabindra Dhungel, 24 august 2020. Missed your favorite television show? Either the Premier League game that starts at midnight or some live program that you want to watch but you are missing to watch for various reasons?
No worries now, the only solution to such a thing is YouTube. Whether it’s the trailer of the Hollywood movie series ‘Doctor Strange’ or the Nepali ‘Six Fists’, you can watch it whenever you want around the world.
Many people know that YouTube is the video streaming service of Google, the search engine giant, but there are some interesting facts that you may not know.
# Google did not have its own product
YouTube was founded by three young people working at PayPal, a well-known payment payment gateway. Chad Hurley, Steve Chen and Javed Karim launched YouTube in 2005. Google bought it in 2006 for $1.65 billion in the first year of its existence.
YouTube now has more than one billion active users, making up one-third of the world’s population with access to the Internet.
Eighty percent of its active users are from outside the United States. YouTube now has local servers in 88 countries, and in addition to this, it has been releasing videos in the local language and by locals.
It can be used in 76 languages so far. Which represents 95 percent of the world’s spoken language among those with access to the Internet. In collaboration with Nepal Telecom, it has set up a local server (Cash Server) in Nepal, with the help of which YouTube can be used at high speeds even with normal speed internet in Nepal.
