In the early 1990s, when the modern Internet was deployed, connection speeds were slow enough to make transfer of large video files infeasible.
In the late 1990s, broadband Internet became widely available because of significant advances in the field of fiber optics. In these early days, video transfer was done via Usenet, IRC, and FTP. After 2000, Web 2.0 changed this, and video sharing sites such as Break.com, Vimeo, and YouTube appeared. Now, streaming sites, such as Netflix and Blockbuster are poised to put your local DVD rental store out of business.
The first video recordings were made on cellulose in the early 1900s, widely referred to as movies. Television was widely available in the 1940s, and video recording was later enabled in the 1950s . In the late 1970s, the first home video recorders were introduced. Video sharing on the Internet did not become widespread until broadband was widely available and inexpensive.
Video, especially video pornography, is very popular on the internet.
- The first movie was made in 1878 by Eadweard Muybridge.
