Video Sharing

A video hosting service, also called a video sharing service allows individuals to upload video clips to an Internet website. The video host will then store the video on its server, and show the individual different types of code to allow others to view this video. Because many users do not have personal web space, either as a paid service, or through an ISP offering, video hosting services are becoming increasingly popular, especially with the explosion in popularity of blogs, forums, and other interactive pages. The website, mainly used as the video hosting service, is usually called the video sharing website. (Thanks to Wikipedia for this definition).

We will be using YouTube.  Keep in mind that there are many other Video Sharing Websites out there.
