Online video has proliferated in the last ten years and YouTube co-founder and CEO Chad Hurley talks about the future of online video on the Official Google Blog.

Hurley talks about how ten years ago online video was in its infancy and how it was used in closed settings with limited bandwidth and expensive and bulky video gear. He says it was the Internet that helped online video to grow.

"It was really the dynamic growth of the Internet (in terms of adoption, speed and ubiquity) that helped to spur the idea that online video – millions of people around the world shooting it, uploading it, viewing it via broadband – was even possible," Hurley writes.

Hurley points out how online video has spread and how barriers have been removed. "Today, there are thousands of different video sites and services. In fact it’s getting to be unusual not to find a video component on a news, entertainment or information website."

"What used to be a gap between ‘professional’ entertainment companies and home movie buffs has disappeared. Everyone from major broadcasters and networks to vloggers and grandmas are taking to video to capture events, memories, stories, and much more in real time."

He says YouTube’s goal is to allow anyone to participate in online video by making the upload process simple and that new video content will be available on any screen.

On the future of online video Hurley writes, "In ten years, we believe that online video broadcasting will be the most ubiquitous and accessible form of communication. The tools for video recording will continue to become smaller and more affordable. Personal media devices will be universal and interconnected."
