After making (and uploading) videos to YouTube for about a year, we finally decided to go behind the scenes of YouTube and ask the YouTube engineers how YouTube actually works. In this video, we learn what YouTube does to videos after they’re uploaded. And in Part 2 (http://g.co/go/NLyt2) we learn what’s actually happening when you watch a YouTube video.

Thanks to our YouTube music master Vibe Mountain for the music in this video. And thanks to our friends Beardy Glasses (http://beardyglasses.com/) & Mixtape Club (http://mixtapeclub.com/) for the animations.

And thanks to our friends who made the awesome video To Scale: The Solar System (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zR3Ig...) which you will see throughout this video.
