YouTube entered the scene on in early 2005 and has now become a staple of internet and has probably been used by nearly everyone in the world with internet access. The wildly popular video sharing platform was founded by three former PayPal employees: Jawed Karim, Steve Chen, and Chad Hurley. The creation of YouTube revolutionized how media is viewed, created, broadcast, and shared. The creation of YouTube videos has given rise to a new industry where the top content creators are now considered celebrities who earn large sums of money, through advertising, by uploading to YouTube.

Additionally, YouTube serves as a digital library and time capsule as videos remain viewable as long as the user hasn’t hidden them or taken them down. This list features the ten oldest YouTube videos that can still be viewed and come from unique users – some of these early users uploaded several videos. Other older videos have been deleted from YouTube, meaning we are unable to show what would be the first ten sequentially uploaded videos.
