Answer: The first video on YouTube was uploaded by Jawed Karim, one of YouTube’s three founders, April 23, 2005. It is titled "Me at zoo," lasts 19 seconds and shows Karim at the San Diego Zoo talking about the elephants. There are hundreds of millions of videos now available on YouTube (some even in 3-D), but the original can still be viewed.
