YouTube LogoYouTube has been serving its clips of animals, planking, people falling over and monkeys in sheepskin coats for eight years.

The video streaming website launched eight years ago with a single video. Bought by Google in 2006, YouTube now has more than a billion unique monthly visitors who watch more than 6 billion hours of video every month.

"Today, more than 100 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute," said YouTube in a blog post. "That's more than four days of video uploaded each minute! Every month, more than [one] billion people come to Youtube to access news, answer questions and have a little fun. That's almost one out of every two people on the internet."

YouTube last week announced a pilot program for a small group of partners that will offer paid channels, with subscription fees starting at $0.99 per month.
