Happy birthday to YouTube!

It was 9 years ago today when the site launched its first video, which was a 19-second clip of one of YouTube's co-founders at the San Diego Zoo.

The site's changed the way we view media ever since. YouTube says users worldwide upload 100 hours of video every minute and more than 6 billion hours of video are watched each month.
