Oldest videos on YouTube

On this page we shall list the oldest videos still available on YouTube. Many of the older videos may not be available on YouTube anymore because they have been deleted, so this list isn't meant to represent the list of videos by because that would be impossible. In fact, some of the videos listed on this page, may have already been deleted from YouTube, so someone better be archiving this for historic purposes.

Data valid as of January 20, 2017 and it based on the random sample of YouTube videos Instead, what we did is sort through our ~300 million video metadata archive and show us the 100 of the oldest videos on youtube It is free to be used and republished anywhere for any purpose as long as we get some sort of credit. If you want more nostalgia about old youtube videos, visit our other pages asuch as - most commented yotuube videos from 2005 Especially true for political and otherwise controversial videos For example, view count or like count will not stay up to date because those were just snapshots of what those statistics were at the time we gathered it. The only portion that should always be up-to-date is the thumbnail (except if YouTube removes that particular video). most discussed videos on Youtube listing those videos that sparked the most comments disporportionately to the number of people who viewed that video.
