How did YouTube become so popular?

When it was first created, YouTube was one of the biggest sites that focused only on video content.

They also allowed videos to be found easily by users, pretty much how Google has made it easy for their users to search through their collection of sites to find what they are looking for.

  1. from my memory, the popularity increased [2005-2006] simply because it `allowed' user to upload many pirated videos, plus fat bandwidth with just click and play. there were other video servers back then too, but sadly not so fast, hence didn't succeed.

    if youtube started with hefty restrictions on pirated contents, of course not popular by now.
